The dominate glass entry canopy is framed with SSM’s shop fabricated, ACM panels.  Complimenting the terra – cotta cladding components, SSM created patinated, weathering steel panels that were about 5’ wide x almost 15 feet tall.

In keeping with the design team’s simple and elegant materials palette, the weathered steel panels continue into the lobby space to tie the two areas together.  The Architects went on to win several design awards for their effort.
