THIS AMBITIOUS FACADE WITH AN INVITING INDUSTRIAL VIBE MAKES THIS STORE STAND OUT in the mall’s new wing. The large glass panels and concrete create a strong first impression that draws the attention of passing shoppers, who also get a clear view of the interior. The storefront facade features an engineered main steel frame and support structure, window glazing units, a sliding glass security door, monolithic window frames, store signage, and a finished wall cladding of fiber-reinforced concrete panels. Each section of glass, metal, and concrete were joined to fit precisely between the demising walls of the defined tenant space. Pre-fabricating the facade sections off-site sped up installation.
