More about this product

Presidio Knolls School underwent current structural standards to provide a multi-purpose space for the growing school. Steel moment frames reinforce the existing wood-framed building and were used as shoring during construction.

In partnership with Studio Bondy, the building was upgraded with modern mechanical and electrical systems, thermal insulation and double-glazed windows which allowed the historic character of the façade was maintained. BŌK Modern implemented nature-inspired, bright green rainscreens symbolic of the surrounding Chinese neighborhood’s context and immersion.

Customized patterns combined with EnFold Façade system’s standards rejuvenate the Presidio Knolls Schools remodeling project. Adding a unique visual treatment along the windows with enhanced security as part of the building’s makeover, EnFold Façade’s panels create dimension, shade, and safety systems as a signature element tying new construction to an existing traditional school building.

    EnFold Façade Wallscreen systems are applicable to building exteriors, parking garage screens, and green screens as well as a variety of interior room divider, wall and ceiling applications. EnFold Façade panels can be directly mounted to the edge of a slab or other structure without the need for secondary supporting members. Panel systems are delivered to site fully fabricated and finished, ready for immediate installation.
