Queen’s University – The Isabel
Kay Meek Arts Centre in the district of West Vancouver, BC offers its audience featuring touring artists plus youth productions. Stella’s structural glass wall system combines the primary building support structure with the glass support structure which leads to less visual obstruction.
The structural glass wall curves it’s way down a staircase, following a line from the entrance lobby to the entrance to the theater. Minimal steel columns with arms projecting from each column, supported the glass. This was facilitated using spider hardware fixed to each arm which, in turn, carry the glass.
