PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The use of five different types of masonry materials on the project included utility size patterned face brick, limestone veneer, cast stone, granite and glazed terra cotta veneer. A distinctive design contrast features limestone veneer used predominantly at the first two levels of the courtyard elevation.  The stone veneer was anchored with stainless steel kerf clips to the steel frame structure.  Unglazed Terra Cotta veneer used at the high roof on the west elevation provided a complimentary color contrast to brick and precast masonry materials.
