Main Façades

A unitised curtain wall system is supported by a series of 21-meter high steel trusses. The challenge was to connect to the steel trusses in the limited available space. This required the design of special extrusions that were studied and engineered to meet the requirements. The connections are hidden inside the profiles which provide a seamless view without exposing any fasteners, meeting the design intent. The system type is a Stick System with Steel Truss System.
