Before discovering UT I never heard of spandrel. Now I notice it everywhere. I don’t mind it so much when the windows make up a greater percentage than the spandrel (as appears to be the case in this project). Maybe too heavy on the grey here, yes.
Menkes’ 365 Church Street Condominium is now home to a unique feature wall as part of the landscape for the building. The unique design, conceived by NAK Design Group and engineered by Eventscape, incorporates layers of perforated metal with an aluminum pattern and lifestyle silhouettes, specifically people and their children or pets.
The brushed aluminum figures were finished with a clear anti-graffiti coating and attached with vandal-resistant hardware, to preserve the installation, and run all around the east side of the building.
