Architectural Design Plans (First Pass)
July 6th, 2011 | Back to Blog Listing
Cotera+Reed has been busy working on the various floorplans and elevations to the Axel Warehouse. The current thinking is to have the interior offices set back from the remainder of the warehouse and steel building walls. This should create a pretty interesting architectural overhang all around the perimeter of the offices while providing much needed shade and privacy from the western side of the property (the street-side).

The shell of the building will make somewhat of a ‘hat’ over the entire bow-string truss system. Tsen Structural is currently working on the structural engineering needs so that we can identify just how many trusses will be required and what type of load(s) they will be able to sustain.
