RTKL mall uses distinctive aluminium facade

Sandton City_3_Novelis ff2

A mall extension project in South Africa, designed by RTKL, has been built with unusual prepainted aluminium facade.

The extension of Sandton City Shopping Mall in Johannesburg uses coil-coated aluminium sheet ff2 by Novelis.

The material covers 15,000m2 of the facade in 2mm thickness, with a PVDF coating.

To blend in with the surroundings, four copper colourings were selected.

The coating on the back is in the same colours, with an abrasion-resistant lacquer system.

Planned by RTKL and executed by MDS Architects, the extension expanded the complex’s retail area with the addition of an hotel and 80-storey office tower.
