So, rather than impose a monolithic form on these two facing blocks, we allowed for organic growth. This means architectural variety, smaller-scale buildings – including reused older structures – and eye-level amenities that form gathering spots, such as a parklet, street furniture and curb extensions. The blocks are further broken-up by paseos and courtyards” said Studio One Eleven Senior Principal Michael Bohn, AIA.

Tubelite Inc.’s Therml=Block® TU24650 Series storefront system features aluminum framing with a dual pocket poured-and-debridged thermal break. Even in extreme cold climates, TU24650 dual thermally broken storefront improves U-Factors by 36 percent and increases CRF by 30 percent over a single poured-and-debridged pocket when using the same size and type of insulated glass. Optimizing thermal performance helps lower the load on HVAC systems and reduce associated energy costs, while maintaining a comfortable interior temperature. Reducing condensation can improve a building’s appearance and sanitation, and minimize damage to adjacent materials. The framing also can be specified in high recycled-content aluminum composition.
