UCLA Men's Gym
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Customer: Custom Design Iron Works, Inc
Project Type: Educational Institutions
Key Contractor: Custom Design Iron Works, Inc
Size/Scope of Project: 15 panels, 1100 ft² of Sambesi 800 ft² of Copper Shimmer
The flexible properties of Sambesi allowed designers to create a multi-functional metal fabric curved wall that reaches high to the upper level, finishing as a balustrade for the railing system. The tensioned fabric gently defines the large area on the ground floor while keeping the outside light flowing to the interior. A fine copper mesh behind the Sambesi called "Shimmer" adds gentle warmth and opacity.
