Halifax’s recently restored 18th century Piece Hall and central courtyard are a marvel, while the adjacent Square Chapel Arts centre offers a more dramatic, angular experience. Evans Vettori designed the arrowhead roof form to connect its new theatre block with Square Chapel’s grade II* listed building. Aluprof supplied the full height MB-SR50N curtain walling system, whose south wall glass was etched by glassmaker Sarah Galloway; the abstracted branches design helping mitigate solar gain. This is Yorkshire remember: the system’s continuous thermal barrier ensured insulation levels met BREEAM standards.
