About the Project

BBC Home Front in the Garden commissioned architectural wire mesh to be installed as part of a garden design for their popular TV series featuring Dairmuid Gavin.

A variety of wire mesh patterns were used to create structures within the garden:

  • Distinctive tunnel linking different areas of the garden - Brocklebank 20/5
  • Decorative and protective cages for fruit trees - Gladstone PC 100/10 (floor) and Brocklebank 50/50 (walls)
  • Screening for a Japanese bath house - Serenity 36

About the Project

Gladstone PC 100/10 architectural mesh installed as bridge balustrading in Maidstone.

Two bridges were designed to cross the River Medway in Maidstone. The award winning designs by architect Cezari M Bednarski

KENT MESSENGER MILLENIUM BRIDGE, KENT

This is the world’s first ‘cranked’ stress ribbon bridge. The deck of this bridge consists of two concrete catenaries that were designed with a dogleg alignment with the angle between them at 25 degrees. The overall length of the bridge is 101.50 m ( river span 49.5 m + side span 37.5 m ). It appears to be the only UK concrete Millennium Bridge and the only one that was not a subject of design competition. The project was commenced in 1998 and completed in 2001. Among all the UK Millennium bridges it had the lowest cost of £2880 ( US$ 4420 ) per m2 of deck, including additional costs related to extreme flood conditions. Cezary M Bednarski’s practice acted as the lead consultant subcontracting structural engineering to Strasky Husty and Partners, with Flint & Neill as the checking engineers. Winner of a 2002 Royal Institute of British Architects Award, the American Institute of Architects / UK, London Chapter, Design Excellence Awards 2003 Commendation, and 2002 fib ( FÉDÉRATION INTERNATIONALE DU BÉTON ) Awards for Outstanding Concrete Structures Nomination.

BLUE MILLENNIUM BEAM BRIDGE MAIDSTONE, KENT

One of two bridges linking an existing river walk with a river and rail locked new park. The design represents an attempt at reintroducing a simple beam as an artistically exciting option in light of the escalating costs of pedestrian bridges reported in the UK. Thanks to its unconventional design this 75 m long bridge has a very slender appearance, which is enhanced by the bold use of colour. Looking as if rested on the tips of four slender fingers, the bridge is carried by two delicate V shaped piers. Circular openings on the underside facilitate deck inspection access, while also saving material and introducing a visual relief to the underside. Two new Maidstone Millennium Park bridges, both designed by Studio Bednarski, form a part of a £7.8 million Millennium project, which was 50% funded by the Millennium Commission. The construction stage photographs were taken in October 2000 during serious flood conditions on the river Medway. Winner of a 2002 STRUCTURAL STEEL DESIGN AWARDS Certificate of Merit for high standard of design.

About the Project

Gladstone 100/10 architectural cable mesh and Gladstone PC 100/10 pre-crimped mesh installed as façade cladding at The Princesshay Shopping Centre Car Park in Exeter.

The Gladstone cable mesh is installed as an outer layer of façade cladding, over the pre-crimped mesh behind, creating a visual moiré effect. The internal layer of pre-crimped Gladstone mesh provides strong and effective security screening between the concrete car park levels.
