Folding partition specialist Building Additions has transformed the interior of the Aisha Masjid & Islamic Centre in Reading by installing three of its multifold partitions.
The mosque wanted to install folding partitions in order to make best use of space; they have became vital elements of the design, and are vinyl wrapped with a visually arresting graphic design that echoes the style of the mosque.
Mustafa Chaudhary, of SpaceOffice, commented: “The project brief called for flexibility of spaces to maximise usage, accommodating a range of activities alongside each other.
“In consultation with Building Additions, we specified the multifolds to provide the spatial and acoustic functionality whilst also lifting the interior aesthetic.
“A bespoke Islamic geometric design was applied as vinyl wrap resulting in a striking ‘mural wall’ design feature. We are delighted with the result and would definitely work with Building Additions again.”
Lead consultants on the project were architectural designers, SpaceOffice Ltd, working alongside: Tim Pearce QS Ltd (quantity surveyors); Clive Hudson Associates Ltd (structural engineers); Designbrook Ltd, (M&E engineers); Muhammad Amine Eatwell of Islamic Artwork & Design and main contractors AM Construction Ltd.
Building Addition’s multifold partition systems consist of continuously hinged panels that are ideal for use when a ceiling head fixing is restricted or where rapid layout changes are required.
Folding partitions or doors work well in many applications including offices, hotel meeting and function rooms, schools, clubs, restaurants and leisure centres.
Multifold hinged partitions comprise linked panels which slide and fold. The panels can all be moved to one side or may be divided to both sides of an opening.
The panels are constructed with a solid particle board on an aluminium peripheral frame. The panels are then filled with mineral wool and other sound obstructing sheets.
The hinged panel arrangement allows for a lead panel to be operated as a conventional pass door when the partition is in use. This is achieved without incurring additional cost. Parked panels may project to one side of the track run or may park centrally.
Building Additions is an established folding partition manufacturer based in Somerset, renowned for manufacturing, supplying and installing quality room partitions and movable walls to businesses, educational organisations and homes across the UK.
