Modern Apartment Community Features High-performance and Aesthetically Unique Kawneer Windows, Entrances, Curtain wall, and Framing Systems
NORCROSS, Georgia – Located in Silver Spring, Maryland, The Pearl, a modern multifamily community provides occupants with a collective environment that draws upon nature, light, and luxury. A range of expansive windows, terrace doors, and curtain wall systems from Kawneer Company, Inc., the leading manufacturer of architectural aluminum products and systems for commercial construction, enhances natural light throughout the buildings, enabling residents to connect with nature.
A Shimmering Pearl
Designed by Baltimore-based Design Collective, The Pearl is comprised of three buildings, each featuring studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments that offer occupants views of Rock Creek Park in addition to an open courtyard, a rooftop farm for fresh produce, and multiple other amenities. To create an engaging, modern aesthetic that connects the natural and urban environments, the design team wanted to build spaces that would be light and airy.
Architectural grade NX-3800 Thermal Windows with structural mullions from Kawneer create a sturdy and reliable window wall appearance that enhance views, natural light, and thermal performance through large floor-to-floor window spans. Engineered Construction Products LTD, the glazing contractor and installer, and Kawneer collaborated to design custom receptors to bridge the larger wall sections, position thermal breaks and provide proper structural support within the stud cavity.
