Danpalon 16mm Ice Cladding at the Chisholm Institute of TAFE, Victoria
A building’s façade creates an immutable image in our consciousness: think of the silver undulations of the Guggenheim Bilbao, and the gleaming white tiles on our own Sydney Opera House. Danpalon has an impressive track record when it comes to stunning, practical façades, having provided the “face” for many well recognised projects.

Aiming to boost the profile of the institution and give it an impressive new entrance, Cox Architects and Planners chose Danpalon 16mm Ice combined with glass as the cladding for the new Access and Language building. Described by Cox as “massive, milky and opalescent”, the structure acts as a luminous beacon attracting visitors to the TAFE entrance, while also meeting fire and UV protection requirements.
