Location: Calgary Canada
Architect: Allied Works Architecture
Product: two groups of glazes in semi-matt graphite and bronze for industrial tiles, 34 x 14.8 cm
Allied Works Architecture designed the new headquarters of the National Music Center in Calgary, Canada. This striking building has since been renamed Studio Bell in honour of its chief sponsor. Working closely with the architect, Royal Tichelaar developed two groups of glazes in semi-matt graphite and bronze for industrial tiles measuring 34 x 14.8 cm to be fitted in aluminum frames.
The enterprise heralds the emergence of a new Calgary. The ambitious design by Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture was inspired by the sheen and colour of musical instruments and mirrors the Canadian landscape. This prize-winning project is seen by many as one of the most exceptional architectural developments currently taking place world-wide.
The official opening took place in 2016.
