ARCHITECTURE - The Pillow Wall
Commercial -- Curtain Wall Design -- Urban Area, USA
Inspired by the artwork of Heather Hutchinson, a portion of a building façade was designed with every element considered. The design of this curtain wall system is bright and regulated. The wall system is dominated by two significant design gestures: (1) the use of solid yellow ceramic frit on the #2 side of the exterior lite for over half of the wall surface, and (2) vision glass that is slumped in a convex manner, making the exterior of the building appear in an almost pillow-like fashion. This adds dimensionality to an otherwise clean and simple façade.
