One Arlington Apartments
The art of revitalization with HAVER Architectural Mesh
Located next to the Arlington International Racecourse in Illinois, The Arlington Downs development is designed with an urban feel. One Arlington Apartments sits 13 stories high on the development, offering 214 luxury apartment units to Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs.
One Arlington Apartments was once the home of Sheraton Chicago Northwest hotel. With the help of the architects at Pappageorge Haymes Partners, the old shuttered hotel was revitalized into a lively apartment building.
The architects needed a breathable system to screen several mechanical louvers on the front of the building. The system needed to fit their design intent while still meeting open area requirements for the mechanical systems.
Haver & Boecker was able to meet all requirements for the One Arlington project with their wire mesh. HAVER Architectural Mesh offered a system with reduced visible anchors and seems between panels, while also being able to provide woven panels large enough to cover 3,200 square feet. Combined with meeting the opening requirements for the building, HAVER Architectural Wire Mesh was the perfect design solution.
To reduce visual transparency from the street but still allow for direct airflow, the architects decided to use the very versatile wire mesh <link _top mesh egla-twin>EGLA-TWIN 4253. With its smooth flat surface on one side which reflects light homogenously and an open area of 51 %, this stainless steel mesh is very popular as a filigree textile outer skin on Façades.
The mesh adds an attractive integration into the building design and the collaboration was a complete success.
