Situated among designated landmark structures, this modern townhouse facade includes 1 ¼” steel plate, nominally 14 feet wide and 34 feet tall, and acts as the centerpiece of the front facade. Tucked behind the steel plate are high span steel windows with knife blade mullions and operable vents. The rear elevation incorporates large stainless steel bi-fold doors and high span steel window walls. Natural light is channeled into the building through a formed copper skylight assembly. Although the design of the facade is very modern, the selected materials blend with the surrounding historic neighborhood.
Axis Facades provided material applications, design development, schematic design, construction documents and construction administration of all facade elements.
