This high rise medical education and treatment facility in an urban university campus setting clearly showcases Metalwërks® custom architectural features.

The long horizontal “Bar ” Building acts as a portal to the facility and helps create a transition from the streetscape to the vertical structure. Solid architectural aluminum elements such as trellis assemblies, aluminum facia, soffit and beam enclosures express the structure and provide interesting textures and shading to an otherwise utilitarian structure.

The large horizontal assemblies on the 6th floor and roof provide horizontal definition of changing floor plate dimensions as the building rises from the street to the roof.

Vertical aluminum channels recessed into the masonry accent the column piers.
