BUILT BY EVENTSCAPE, DECEMBER 2010
The architects designed an elliptical brushed aluminum canopy over the main reception counter in this soaring three storey atrium featuring plenty of natural light and bright colors. The three rings cover an area of 22’ x 28’. All rings were laser cut, rolled and welded with aluminum fins as joiner plates and hand polished. The outer ring has an 8” x 12” profile with a reveal to incorporate the cathode lighting. The canopy was suspended using a combination of nautical stainless steel rigging and custom concealed stainless steel mounts.
