Reykjavik, located in the south west of Iceland and with a latitude of 64°8’ N, is the world’s northernmost capital of a sovereign state. Extreme weather conditions are the norm and so something out of the ordinary was required for an impressive new entrance to the Arion Banki.
The basic brief from T-Ark, the in-house architect for the Bank, was to design an outstanding and impressive entrance that would protect the interior of the building from the rigours of a sea-front location subjected to high winds and a corrosive environment.
The chosen design called for a fully automatic Royal Full Vision RFV 3200AY revolving door with a diameter of 3200mm and a turning height of 6200mm. The door features a glass roof, fully glazed walls with integrated colour-changing LED lighting and stainless steel framing for strength and transparency.
An automatic curved, sliding night door can be used to close the opening out of hours and high powered heaters integrated into the floor ensure any cold air entering while the door rotates, is heated before it enters the building.
This addition to the list of impressive installations demonstrates what makes Bauporte different; listening to client’s needs and coming up with a unique solution.
