Griffin Middle School

In Frisco, Texas, the new Griffin Middle School campus was designed with modern education in mind, focusing on small learning communities within the school, as well as spaces for larger group gatherings. Spanning over 180,000 square-feet over two stories, the high-traffic areas require durable materials that can withstand the wear and tear of daily school activities. Banker Wire’s architectural woven wire mesh pattern FPZ-16 was chosen by designers for both its sturdiness as well as it’s aesthetic benefits. The iconic curved glass front of the building, as well as the numerous broad windows, create an airy atmosphere in the school’s main hall.

Corporate Office Building

For the design of a new prominent corporate office headquarters located in Little Rock, Arkansas, Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects utilized Banker Wire’s SZ-4 wire mesh pattern—in a stainless steel and brass mixed alloy—to create a striking ceiling installation. Bridging two separate, glass-clad office spaces linked by a five-story, atrium-like structure, the wire mesh-fabricated ceiling visually anchors the interior as a key focal point. Similarly, SZ-4’s placement within the organic ceiling shapes nod to the mountainous exterior landscape while adhering to the building’s safety requirements. “Selected for both its aesthetic and technical qualities, the high-quality nature of Banker Wire’s SZ-4 wire...

Twistes Plinth

Twisted Plinth is a 'Patalab designed stainless steel display stand that can be adjusted in height and tilted from 0 - 90°. The capacity for reconfiguration is achieved by cutting the plinth along a 45° plane that acts as a joint allowing the upper part to slide along the cut plane for height adjustment, or, tilting displays into more favorable presentation angles.   This mechanical plinth thus provides higher levels of flexibility for the exhibition of objects than static ones. Assembled in groups of two or more the plinths’ individual configurations can add to a sense of communication amongst the displays themselves. In terms of construction, the plinth is a straightforward wireframe box composed of 8mm square steel... More

Chelsea Townhouse

The existing 3,400 SF [316 m2] brownstone townhouse is a landmark, located in Chelsea, NY. It will be gut-renovated and a 550 SF [52 m2] garden extension will be added with two floors and a roof terrace. The client, a fashion designer, is interested in a ‘textured’ and layered approach. The new rear extension is conceived as a light airy space which creates a filter to the garden space beyond, adding more light and better views. The new garden façade is a 3D folded steel and glass structure with reclaimed tropical palisander infill. It extends the library on the garden level, the living room on the parlor floor and creates a terrace for the master bedroom area above. The interior of the townhouse is gut-renovated; the t... More
