Airport Square 13

In today’s hyper-competitive commercial real estate market, there's no shortage of properties for prospective tenants to choose from.

To help transform the four-story structure into a viable lease option with strong curb appeal, the architect they hired covered the exterior with Dri-Design rainscreen metal wall panels.

Akron Art Museum

With all due respect, Akron, Ohio is about the last place you’d expect to find a provocative piece of modern architecture. Yet the Akron Art Museum’s John S. and James L. Knight addition is just that. The 63,000 sq. ft. addition was designed by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU of Austria and represents the celebrated firm’s first public project in the United States. The addition represented a first for the museum too. After having operated out of existing buildings since its inception in 1922, the addition is the museum’s first purpose-built space. One of the addition's eye-catching features is its 327'-long cantilevered canopy. Framed with steel, it is covered with an egg crate aluminum screening produced by Ohio Gratings Inc.

Alberta E-House

Equal Door Industries of Calgary, Alberta, Canada bills itself as Canada's Premier Garage Door Company.

Alley 24

Located in the South Lake Union section of Seattle, Washington, Alley 24 owes its name to the fact it sits on a city block subdivided into four quarters by intersecting midblock alleys. Perhaps a name suggesting sustainability would have been more appropriate though, as the project is among the city’s most environmentally friendly and represents one of the U.S.’s first LEED-certified mixed-use projects. Among the energy-efficient products used on the project were UNA-CLAD™ Custom Sunscreens from Firestone Metal Products of Anoka, MN.
