Tilt-Up

The three primary elements of the building are the tilt-up concrete walls, the curvilinear roof and the curtain wall. The primary structure is composed of tilt-up concrete walls. The intent was to take a technology typically used for inexpensive big-box construction and push it into something more meaningful. The walls are comprised of 46 panels in total, each uniquely shaped. To keep the architecture elemental, electrical conduit and some mechanical chases were cast in the walls to hide the services and all are left exposed as an architectural concrete finish inside and out.
