Northwood Hills Modular Vitreous Enamel Cladding

Links Signs was commissioned by the London Borough of Hillingdon to design a modular vitreous enamel cladding system that could carry artwork by renowned artists Gordon Collett and Cosmo Sarson. These murals celebrate the history of the local Northwood Hills area as part of a large regeneration project.

Surveys of the mural areas were made, in order to establish a panel design meeting the requirements of the artists. In addition, Transport for London also required us to develop a robust framing and fixing method. Since balancing artistic and structural requirements was crucial, this was obviously no mean feat.

In the end, Links Signs produced 48 individual screen printed panels of beautiful artwork. Working closely with the artists, a bespoke palette of colours were mixed at our studio. These were in turn screen printed to the cladding, with each panel having between 9 and 23 colours!
