Nordstrom Vancouver

The conversion of this building from a totally enclosed concrete panel system to a light window curtain wall system plus the need to emphasise the entrance to this iconic store resulted in an all glass lobby built onto a steel HSS base structure. Glass fins increased the lightweight effect of the walls whilst glass, mounted onto steel HSS members allows a profusion of light into the building beyond.

Not only did Stella focus on the hardware side of things, but engineering design also played a big part in the process as well.
