Kieran Timberlake Office Stair
Working with Young + Dring, Zahner provided custom metalwork for planters in the Power & Light District of Kansas City. As the largest single implementation of streetscape in the downtown area, the installation of 180 Ginkgo trees resulted in a verdant urban forest.Focused on tree health and long-term growth, custom planters and metal tree-surrounds were functionally and aesthetically designed by Young+Dring, which were then fabricated and installed by Zahner. Each of the aluminum plate planters was water jet cut to manufacture the patterned metal. The award-winning Power & Light District is part of the current downtown Kansas City renaissance. In an ongoing effort since 2005, Young + Dring have participated in the revitalization of seven city blocks. The result is a more verdant, more walkable space in downtown Kansas City.

Suzanne Roberts Theatre
Completed in 2007, the new theater for Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts was designed by Kieran Timberlake and named for Suzanne Roberts, former actress, playwright, and director. Timberlake contracted Zahner to provide engineering and fabrication for the dynamic shape of the facade signage. The complex curvature was accomplished using the Zahner ZEPPS Technology - a patented system for building complex, curving sculptural forms. Light interference stainless steel provides the sign's unique coloring.
