Graepels venture into the Celtic sea…

A small group from Graepels decided to visit the historical Spike Island, in the South of Ireland, County Cork. The project was manufactured for Coughlan Architects earlier this year and is now installed at entrance to the island.

Graepels fabricated Perforated Ceiling tiles and Picture-Perf panels for the new shelter which has been erected on the existing pontoon of Spike Island.

The Picture Perf panels were manufactured in 3mm marine grade aluminium and used a variety of hole sizes to create the image of De Valera.

The shelter uses a mix of materials such as; concrete, glass and perforated metal which together work harmoniously, giving a beautifully minimalist feel to the shelter, creating impact on arrival.

The ceiling tiles are fabricated in Marine grade aluminium, a suitable metal for projects located in a harbour or within close proximity to the sea. The panels use three perforation sizes, randomly formed and powder coated to blend with the other materials. Each of the panels have 30mm returns on all four sides.
