Falco Designs Striking Cylindrical Cycle Shelter and Bespoke Seating for De Vaart Elementary School in Ter Aar, Netherlands
This is the striking cylindrical cycle shelter Falco designed, manufactured, supplied and installed for De Vaart Elementary School in Ter Aar, Netherlands.
Combining creativity with practicality, the new eye-catching cycle shelter sits conspicuous within the school grounds and provides secure levels of cycle parking for students and staff.
The bespoke cycle shelter is based on the traditional FalcoLok design and boasts a generous 6m diamater with associated curved doors, secure access, a green sedum roof and bespoke FalcoSinus seating surrounding the perimeter.
Designed by Falco’s in-house design team, the unique cycle shelter is manufactured from a combination of hot-dip galvanised steel with FSC® certified hardwood slats.
Installed by Falco last month, the cycle shelter and seating has been designed in such a way to maximise the facilities available to students, yet within the tight constraits of space available.
The green sedum roof, an increasingly popular feature for Falco shelters, supports the schools sustainable development plan by providing the many advantages associated with green roof systems as well as insulation for both heat and noise. A sedum roof both reduces water discharge as well as compensating for CO2 emissions. A further benefit of green roof systems is that they traditionally last longer than a usual roof covering and offer a natural view for students from the upper floors.
The FalcoSinus seating as shown here, is a contemporary bench design ideal for a wide number of applications. The design is available in various radii and angles allowing a number of configuration possibilities. The FalcoSinus can contour a specific line to follow or highlight a natural or man-made curve.
