Arcpanel (160mm Custom Panel) curved and straight roof panels
G2 Architects were engaged to design an extension for Coffs Habour’s National Cartoon Gallery. With a team of multi award winning passionate architects and draftsman, G2 have the contacts to ensure quality outcomes.
The Gallery has transitioned from a World War II communications bunker to ‘the spiritual home of cartooning in Australia’. The gallery sits directly above the original bunker and maintains the same width.
Unique characteristics of the project include the amazing barrel style roof. This provides an amazing, awe inspiring finish to the buildings exterior, with a beautiful, contemporary interior space.
Benefits using of using the Arcpanel product on the project included quick Installation for such a difficult designed roof.
The Arcpanel Curved Roof Panels were a great choice as they achieved the desired curve and require no internal lining as it is a pre-finished product. The corrugation has an excellent effect on the inside creating a magnificent feature.
The state government provided a $2.6 million grant to build the extension. Paul McKeon, chair of the National Cartoon Gallery said that the extension is, “The most most beautiful Nissen hut in the world”.
