This is super cool cladding: heavy masonry, concave/convex, nice geometric pattern,12" thick at least, contrasting neutral colors. I particularly like ‘punch windows’ if they are large; as opposed to the floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall. This is a truly artistic looking new building that goes above and beyond the generic: so bravo.

Speaking of generic - take a look at the newish red brick building directly next to this beauty. That plane Jane is the perfect foil for this fantastic looking facade.

They made all the right design choices, those heavy stone panels look great; and simply attaching the large prefabricated panels make for fast and efficient construction of the facade. This is relatively low-cost construction process while pulling off a ‘high-design’ look with those diamond geometric forms making the appearance of the facade ‘pop’. My only critique is that one color would have been better; more cohesive.

I see now how that two-tone facade is better than keeping the whole building one color: the geometric pattern of the facade seems more prominently on display this way.

I respectfully withdraw my former criticism of the two-tone color choice for the facade. :roll_eyes:
