Silver Towers Courtyard Trellis in New York
Silver Towers is a development in New York City which features Zahner manufactured perforated metal and glass systems. The courtyard, plinth and rooftop terrace design by James Carpenter Design Associates, brings an artistic approach to both the facade as well as the landscape for the residential project.
Between the two high-rise towers is a six floor plinth, the interior courtyard of which features a 75 foot light wall. Various metal and glass light fixtures which feature the artist's pattern.
Zahner was hired by the architect to design, engineer, and fabricate these metal and glass systems. Each of the fixtures features a perforated metal floral pattern designed by the architect, contained within a glass and stainless steel lightbox.
Also known as River Place II, the project features two 57 floor twin towers and is located in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan Island. The project was developed by Larry Silverstein and completed in 2009.
Hope Tower at UNMC
The Tower at UNMC is a James Carpenter Design Associates project. The project's design team was led by Richard Kress. The campus art feature stands at 120 feet. A private donation led by Ruth and Bill Scott brought this iconic campus feature to the University of Nebraska Medical Center.The tower serves provides a beacon for students, serving as both a navigational tool and an artistic centerpiece. Zahner provided the ti-coated stainless steel panels, perforated and prepped for installation onto the architect's engineered frame. These panels were engineered and produced at Zahner at the Kansas City plant.
Above is a photograph of the towers during the day. Zahner produced some metalwork at the building's top, similar in pattern and effect to those in the building's courtyard. This rooftop courtyard has not yet been photographed.
Silver Towers is the first project that Zahner has provided metalwork for James Carpenter Design Associates. Recently, Zahner also completed a spiraling 120 foot tower in Nebraska for the architectural firm.
