Zahner operates at every scale, from intricate design fabrication for art objects and industrial design, to large-scale developments spanning city blocks. Below is a collection of featured projects completed with Zahner engineering and fabrication completed for projects on a massive scale.
Situated on Los Angeles’ famous Miracle Mile, the newly renovated Petersen Automotive Museum has achieved an iconic status while creating open spaces which invite community engagement. The design encases the building in a red-painted corrugated aluminum rainscreen system which acts as the backdrop for a series of stainless steel structural ribbons. These scopes were engineered, manufactured, and installed by Zahner.Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) in New York with the construction management by Matt Construction in Los Angeles, Zahner was brought onto the project early on in the planning and development process. Starting under a Design Assist (DA) contract, the construction team developed a fabrication and installation strategy with the engineers at Zahner.This is the second project completed by Zahner with KPF. The two teams worked together prior on the IBM Headquarters in Armonk, New York.
