Caunton completed the frame for The Curve, the civic building in Slough. As the name suggests the structure is a steel-framed curved rectangle in shape and plan. Each of the building’s elevations feature either cantilevers or sloping and curving facades, with the main north side presenting the most striking aspect with a long sweeping, predominantly glazed, elevation looking on to the adjacent listed St Ethelbert’s Church
The three level building is 89.7m long, 15.5m high and has a width which is 16.5m at its maximum and 8.7m at its narrowest. With an overall floor space of 4,500m2, the centre will include a library, café, office space and a 280-seat performance space.
