Folding panels on boathouse warehouse, in Brighton [370]

The Harry Parker Community Boat House is the seat of a rowing club situated in between the turnpike and the Charles River in Brighton, Massachusetts. These volume set includes a main building with general dependencies and a large warehouse of rowboats.

The façade of the warehouse is exclusively formed by Prodema panels mounted on metal racks. With them modular vertical strips organize the facade.

At the bottom these strips are alternately fixed and mobile. Mobile strips are formed by two racks which can be enlarged and folded outwardly, opening by its central part. When the panels are closed they overlap to ensure water tightness. When open the warehouse is vented and illuminated.
