University of Washington (UW) – Bioengineering & Genome Science Building
Originally conceived for the University of Washington’s Bioengineering and Genome Science Building, this product has also been used a distinct balustrade support.
How It Was Created….
The initial design of the sunshade support on the aforementioned project was a bulky aluminum extrusion affixed to the aluminum uprights. Stella became involved with the design and worked with the architect to design a custom solution. Our final design was an organically shaped and easy-to-install stainless steel fastener that not only looked good but also saved on installation costs. The large number of custom parts on this wall made the actual sunshade support cost-effective as well.
