“The clubhouse was conceived as an inviting living room for the neighborhood,” says WRNS Studio. “Its geometries are derived from integration with the park and a respectful contrast to the surrounding neighborhood fabric.”
Preweathered zinc was specified to clad the clubhouse exterior façade and portions of the roof. MetalTech-USA was chosen to fabricate the zinc Flatlock Tile system. In total, 4,500 square feet of Flatlock Tiles were required to sheathe the L-shaped clubhouse.
“In addition to their durability and easy maintenance, the [zinc] panels were chosen to enhance the building’s aesthetic and the delightful contrast within its urban setting,” notes WRNS Studio on the selection of zinc for the building exterior.
The design by WRNS called for the Flatlock panels to transition in an uninterrupted manner from the façade to the roof. A majority of the cladding was able to be prefabricated by MetalTech-USA. However, the panels for the unique façade to roof transition were prepped at the MetalTech-USA facility and then field cut and formed on-site to fit by project installer Pioneer Contractors, LLC.
“Open communication with the installer on panel orientation and panel count was critical to ensure proper fabrication of the system, “says MetalTech-USA Project Manager Josh Spence. “Pioneer Contracting did a great job to keep the overall design while enhancing the ease of installation. We are very pleased with the results.”
