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.
Product System Used
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. Designed with the same precision laser cutting typical throughout the entire BŌK Modern line of products, EnFold Façade Wallscreens can encompass an infinite array of patterns and shapes, and be finished in Kynar, powder coat, anodized aluminum, or rusted surface (Core-ten) steel.
