FORWARD VISION – the customized elements reflect the distinctive natural landscape of South Tyneside’s beatiful coastline and will give the impression of ripples and waves. The outstanding building was officially opened by Prince William – the Duke of Cambridge – in November 2013.
The visual 3D design is effected by the rotational use of convex and concave elements. Each tile is handmade and coated with a customized, special effect glaze.
The full swimming pool and leisure complex in the Northeast area of England was being clad with 21,600 specially-designed long-life terracotta tiles. The result is an outstanding and impressive building which will appear to move and be ever-changing like the waves and rippling sea.
