Vision Art To Be Fitted To £19.7 Million Wellcome Trust Project

A £9.7 million project known as the Kitchen Garden Enclosure is reminiscent of the famous glass ceiling in the British Museum and will include perforated Vision Art screening in the Auditorium. 


A £9.7 million project known as the Kitchen Garden Enclosure is reminiscent of the famous glass ceiling in the British Museum and will include perforated Vision Art screening in the Auditorium.

The new build will be incorporated in the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, based South of Cambridgeshire in the idyllic grounds of the Hinxton Hall estate. The grounds play host to scientific research, courses and conferences, along with a publicly accessible nature reserve. 

The project is set to modernise and improve the facilities, creating a spectacular development for the area. Adding to this development, Ash & Lacy will provide perforated Vision Art screening that will line part of the Auditorium wall, further adding to the modernised facility that will become a cutting-edge spectacle. The Vision Art screening, like previous developments from Ash & Lacy, will incorporate a range of materials, patterns and finishes that will allow the design to come to life in the real world.

Perforated Vision art is an extremely innovative design that provides new and refurbished builds with a modern look. With our technical expertise and unrivalled knowledge, the perforation of customised patterns or images is highly efficient and accurate, providing a service that is second to none.



Vision Living: Be Inspired
Personalise your indoor and outdoor living space by adding a custom made piece of Vision Art.

Personalise your indoor and outdoor living space by adding a custom made piece of Vision Art.

Unlike common perforated sheets, which usually have a uniform perforation pattern, Vision Art allows you to create a customised perforation pattern based on your favourite picture.

With endless opportunities, customised perforated metal allows clients to add their personal touch to the work. Vision Art is ideally suited for interior and garden designs, allowing you to be inspired by the world around you and develop a stunning piece of metal art tailored to your requirements.

Furthermore, perforated metal patterns have already been used to produce visual images for cladding and decorative applications in towns and cities across the UK. The innovative designs are giving buildings a somewhat new unique artistic look, therefore drawing attention to the buildings and their designs.

Vision Living is a unique service allowing customers to include their personal touch on interior and garden based designs. However, if you are unsure on a design, we can suggest ideas that may be suitable for the effect or style you require.

For When Precision Levelling Really Counts
As perforating metal naturally curls any material, the need for precision levelling is paramount. With the equipment and expertise, Ash & Lacy have everything you need to ensure your project is not hindered by warped sheets that will cost you time and money to put right.
As perforating metal naturally curls any material, the need for precision levelling is paramount. With the equipment and expertise, Ash & Lacy have everything you need to ensure your project is not hindered by warped sheets that will cost you time and money to put right.

Manufacturing high specification products that are at times, part of a process where time is of the essence, the product needs to be created on time, to specification and on budget, therefore warped sheets as a result of the perforating process is not acceptable. Ash & Lacy have the equipment and expertise to ensure flatness is controlled throughout the perforating process, saving customers time and money. 

With unrivalled expertise, we focus on producing high-quality and premium products by working to precise and meticulous standards. Using high specification stretch levelling equipment, Ash & Lacy can control the stress and natural curve of the material produced during the perforating process. 

Thanks to continual investment and planned maintenance, we are able to continue to produce products that are of the highest quality, tailored to suit our customers every need, providing both a specialised product and service that is second to none.
