Artesia Campos Eliseos
Artesia is a luxury residential complex in Mexico City which runs along the Campos Eliseos boulevard in Polanco. The residence's ground levels feature permanent artworks by Jan Hendrix which were manufactured by Zahner. Working with Hendrix+Studio, the team developed a concept which fits into the overall architectural vision by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos.
The artwork by Hendrix is a permanent art installation made up of a series of massive perforated columns. Each column is made using mirror-polish aluminum, perforated to exacting standards based on the illustrated drawings by Hendrix+Studio. The aluminum plates were perforated using a mill process and connected using with custom-joinery. The forms are further polished to achieve a uniform mirror finish.
Patio de las Jacarandas
Patio de Las Jacarandas is a Jan Hendrix and Hendrix Studio-designed work of public art in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The project's metal canopy was developed and fabricated by Zahner in water-jet cut aluminum.Situated at the historic Plaza de la Patria in Aguascalientes, the Patio de las Jacarandas is an architectural open-air canopy. Arturo Revilla and Jose Luis Jimenez Garcia served as the project architects, while Zahner’s scope on the project centered around the engineering and fabrication of the art canopy.The system was engineered and tested by Zahner, and then manufactured and delivered to the jobsite where local installers erected the screen wall. The project was completed in 2015, and features a two-tiered canopy of water jet-cut aluminum plates. Both layers of cut-out metal are painted to create the white ¼” aluminum plate.
