Luxury and spaciousness were top of mind for Karl Fischer Architects, the New York City design firm responsible for 101 Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. The 351-unit building, which covers nearly the entire block, is located just across the street from a park and is one subway stop away from the city. Surrounding the top of the building are Omega-Lite aluminum composite panels from Laminators Incorporated of Hatfield, PA.
In addition to its location, 101 Bedford Avenue offers its tenants a number of amenities. The building has a mix of studio apartments and one- and two-bedroom units with oversized rooms and floor-to-ceiling windows, many offering views of the Manhattan skyline. There's also a swimming pool, a hot tub and more. As a reflection of the quality to be found inside, the Omega-Lite panels were an ideal choice on the outside.
Approximately 24,000 sq. ft. of Laminators Inc. Omega-Lite panels top the building. They were supplied in a custom Medium Chocolate Bronze color that complements the building's predominantly masonry exterior. The metal panels were attached using a Dry Seal installation system.
In addition to manufacturing the panels, Laminators Incorporated provided the project field measurements for A-Porcel of Brooklyn, who fabricated and supplied the ACM panels.
