The Danum Gallery, Library and Museum features Senior's SF52 curtain wall system, which envelopes the restored facade of the former Doncaster High School for Girls.

Curtain walling by aluminium fenestration solutions provider Senior Architectural Systems has been specified at the Danum Gallery, Library and Museum in Doncaster.

Designed by architects Bond Bryan and built by main contractor Willmott Dixon, the new cultural and learning hub has been created following the restoration of four existing buildings. 

A key focal point of the scheme is the restored frontage of the Edwardian former Doncaster High School for Girls, which has been framed by Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall and showcased within a new steel-frame building. The glazed facade, which was fabricated and installed by Senior’s supply chain partner Chemplas, also features Senior’s aluminium commercial doors.

As well as accentuating the architectural appeal of the old school building, the scheme provides a light, airy and welcoming space for the local community to explore some of the town’s heritage and previously unseen exhibits.

Senior’s SF52 curtain wall system has a strong slim aluminium frame that minimises sightlines and provides exceptional views of the restored school building’s period features. The system’s enhanced thermal performance also helps boost the scheme’s overall energy efficiency.

Available as a mullion drained system that removes the need for visible drainage slots, Senior’s SF52 curtain wall can be specified as capped, silicone sealed or as a combination of the two for even greater design flexibility. Thanks to Senior’s in-house powder-coating facility, the SF52 system is available in an almost unlimited range of colours and finishes.
