The Challenge: How to update the appearance of three large existing office buildings and visually tie them together with a fourth brand new, contemporary office building. Knowing the existing precast panels and window systems would have to remain, and that the disruption of the occupants within the buildings would need to be minimized, Wessling Architects had to explore different solutions to cover or clad the facades.

Project Scope:

  • Unique multi-building façade renovation project.

  • Applied Conproco Structural Skin, a fiber reinforced cement-based coating, to the vertical surfaces of the building's original precast concrete panels.

  • Every detail of the design was carefully considered and often mocked up ahead of time to understand its constructability, long-term resistance to environmental factors, general durability, and overall aesthetic impact.
