Allplastics Engineering supplied clear acrylic cabinets for the interior fitout of two classrooms at the iconic Dr Chau Chak Building in Sydney.
Opened in February 2015 by the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, Australia’s first Frank Gehry designed building, the Dr Chau Chak Building at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) features many of the famous architect’s signature curves and unique characteristics.
Two log cabin style oval classrooms located in the lower levels of the building allow students to interact with each other across the room with their tutor at the centre or side.
Allplastics was commissioned by Karisma Joinery to custom fabricate clear acrylic cabinets from Perspex sheets for the fitout. The carcase and bulkhead were individually constructed, drilled and sanded from 12mm thick clear acrylic to achieve the finish specified by the architect.
Allplastics additionally supplied 25mm clear acrylic panels for the light features in the UTS cafeteria area.
Allplastics specialises in the fabrication, machining and supply of acrylics, polycarbonate and other architectural and building plastics and design surfaces.
