OUR WORK

KELLER WILLIAMS REALTY
WEST DES MOINES, IOWA
A once vacant restaurant building in a vibrant business district now features a new facade for a realty company. A 90’ long by 20’ tall screen wall is constructed of multiple layers, first being the vertical cruciform steel columns that tie back to the existing building, followed by the diamond latticed steel straps, and finally the 1x1 horizontal finished wood strips. It acts as a perforated wall that provides a space between itself and the existing building where a new glassed in vestibule entry and open patio are situated. 2016 AIA IOWA CRAFT AWARD
