Arthur J. Altmeyer Federal Building

The Arthur J. Altmeyer Federal Building, located in Woodlawn, MD, was originally erected in 1960 and still stands today as the Social Security Administration Building. The goal of this project was to update the facade of the building, giving it a more modern look. The original intent was for the facade to be comprised of a bead blast aluminum finish. However, bead blast finishes tend to have flatness and variability issues, lacking consistency and a uniform look on major large-scale projects such as this one. Additionally, bead blasting is typically done in sheet form, and can thus be very expensive.Our solution? InvariMatte® Micro Texture on aluminum. InvariMatte® can be rolled coil-to-coil, saving money on sheet costs, and alumin... En savoir plus

Burlingame Point Parking Ramp

Rigidized® Metals’ InvariMatte® micro texture clads the parking ramp at Burlingame Point. Stainless steel is not only a very efficient reflector of solar energy, it also substantially reduces insulation requirements. Unlike other bare metals that patina, or paints that oxidize, stainless steel retains all of its original solar reflectance and energy efficiency for as long as it remains installed. Because the accumulation of dirt can have a detrimental effect on solar reflectance, the InvariMatte® surface is dirt-resistant. En savoir plus

Sales Represantative Of Tabriz And Keraben Tile

The store had undergone changes three times during the past twenty years. When we were contacted about the job, two problems caught our attention: ·         First, the closedness of the space and the poor connection between the floors. The visitors were unable to form a mental image of the upper floor where products were on display in a closed space and the basement in which accessories and other items were stored. ·         Second, the customers’ struggle to choose because of the wide variation of the products and having a hard time visualizing the desired arrangement in the target space. The solution to these two problems formed the basis of the reconstruction project: &middo... En savoir plus

Stone Box _ Cenador en Valencia

Stone Box was designed to resolve the issues of an exterior space in a large house that had fallen in disuse. As always occurs in large gardens, they are not useful if they cannot be fully enjoyed day to day. For this reason within the first visit the client confided in us to create a connection space that organizes the garden giving it vitality and functionality that up to the moment it didn’t possess. To achieve this, it’s thought in an opened-closed object, without renouncing the warmth and functionality of the interior spaces, even though being on the exterior. The idea that the object can be closed or opened depending on the moment seemed like an interesting idea and a very ideal given the position it has. This two premi... En savoir plus

Daarbast Cafe

Daarbast Café is about 376 square meters. The main goal of its interior design is creating social interaction among people. The possibility for establishing other branches of the café in future was considered in order to fulfill the owner’s request. Scaffolds are used as the main structure of design which grants an identity to the space. A part of the exterior wall is destroyed to benefit from sun light and natural views.
