Whether it’s a creating a grand entrance or ensuring access for everyone, GEZE can ensure all leisure venues attract people through their doors.
As well as needing to strike the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality, there can be a long list of specific needs to consider, including sustainability, accessibility, security, health and safety, flow of people around the building, environmental impact or heritage sensitivity.
GEZE UK’s new Project Portfolio Leisure outlines how some of these considerations have been put into practice, courtesy of a range of different buildings from a prestigious art gallery, old and modern theatres and striking landmark visitor attractions.
The brochure focuses on the flexibility that GEZE UK’s extensive range of solutions provides as a manufacturer of both manual and automatic door and window control systems.
It illustrates how the application of solutions must meet demanding and exacting standards that will help ‘sell’ the venue to visitors, while meeting practical requirements for building management.
Examples include the Whitworth Gallery, in Manchester, which was enhanced by a glazed extension that complemented the existing Grade II listed building and the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, where increasing audience numbers led to the need to create new entrances; these made a grand statement, whilst allowing huge numbers of people to flow through the building effectively.
Also featured are automatic bi-parting curved sliding glass doors that sit seamlessly within The Wing, a visitor and education centre for the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust at Capel-le-Ferne, Kent demonstrating how GEZE’s innovative products provide impressive entrances that echo the building’s style, whilst ensuring accessible, draught-free entrances.
The Project Portfolio Leisure defines the importance of specifying the right doors for the environment – in this case the entrances to the Beach Building, beneath Brighton’s ‘vertical pier’, the British Airways i360. The solution had to be robust and resilient, capable of withstanding both high visitor numbers and coastal elements.
