A new £5m theatre and community arts centre in Devon has been given an imposing appearance thanks to the use of a dramatic rainscreen cladding solution from Sto.

While creating a crisp and contemporary style for the new Pavilions Teignmouth building, the StoVentec Glass cladding also reflects the surrounding Victorian architecture and helps the new venue to provide a pleasing and contemporary visual contrast to its surroundings.

Some 600m2 of the StoVentec Glass system was used to clad the first floor of the new building. The rainscreen cladding system features a rugged, adjustable sub-construction with Sto-Stainless Steel Wall Brackets, aluminium support profiles and Sto-Rainscreen Duo Slab insulation. These are then covered with bespoke StoVentec Glass panels, which feature toughened glass bonded to lightweight carrier boards.

Sto finished the ground floor blockwork walls externally with StoRend Fibre Plus.
