A new and striking lobby experience awaits the companies of 4300 Wilson Blvd, a mixed-use retail and office space in Arlington. The project design takes cues from hospitality to create a warm and inviting common areas for employees, while providing amenities that will meet the demand of a modern workforce. By upgrading the exterior entrances, the design team aimed to make the building more inviting and interesting – starting with a custom fabricated exterior canopy detail. The triangular shapes, custom fabricated in Italy by Wood Skin, are custom installed to give the material a fluid appearance.
Pure+Freeform were involved by provided a cladding that could match the interior cladding fabricated by Wood Skin as Wood Skin's veneers are not exterior grade. The required custom match was made from 1.0mm aluminum that was covered with a custom woodgrain finish. This allowed for continuity in the lobby’s focal piece through the vestibule and exterior canopy without concerns for durability in the future.
