efficiently planned between
trades to provide maximum
utilization of interior spaces
while maintaining the primary
design intentions," explains
Touloukian.

Sapele Soffits

A roof deck also provides
additional gathering spaces
with a unique vantage point
of the cityscape and park. "A
green roof was implemented
to soften the experience
of the roof deck and also
creates a more desirable
aesthetic from the viewpoint
of the high-rise structures
adjacent to the site looking
down on the building," he
says. "In addition to its urban
relationships, the intent
for flexible indoor/outdoor
spaces was also driven by the
client's desire for adaptable
spaces that could support a
wide variety of building and
park programming."

To achieve a strong
identity, inspiration was
drawn from the automotive
legacy of Detroit and the
mid-century Ford Mustang.
"The efficiency, compactness
and beauty of this vehicle
was highly relatable to
the design challenges
faced with a flexible
space needing complex
structural, mechanical and
programming coordination.
The design was able to
achieve a solution which
approached the integration
of its systems as a machine.

were highly reviewed and

The exterior building
facades are comprised of
Sapele wood soffits, metal
panel walls and fascia, and
precast concrete wall panels
and grand stair. The interior
space utilizes the same
Sapele with an undulating
louvered ceiling and wood
walls fastened with brass
screws. Additional white
acoustic fabric and painted
steel uni-strut systems help
support the ceiling and
provide a balanced offset
against the wood interior.

SAPELE

"Sapele was chosen
primarily for its warm palette
and also for its durability
in an exterior application,"
notes Touloukian.
