Unique to this project, Porcelanosa was able to develop custom porcelain panels that emulated the same look as the natural limestone that was used throughout the base of the building. Additionally, the facade involved all mitered porcelain corners, giving it a clean and upscale look.
After completing the project, the architect Manuel Glas stated, “the open joint ventilated system, ease of installation, and durability of porcelain… inspired new ways to treat the facade.”
The 21 story building houses 73 different residences that range from studios to 3 bedroom units that take up entire floors.
Issac & Stern Architects worked with Porcelanosa to find the perfect texture and color for their façade design. The Nevins is completely covered in 21,000 square feet of Porcelanosa’s concrete-look Dover Arena porcelain panels, which were cut down to 12 3/8” x 47” panels specifically for the project. The Dover porcelain includes shade variations that create a natural stone effect. The porcelain cladding installation was smoothly coordinated with the prefabricated metal window returns.
Located in the Fitler Square area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Fitler Nine is a set of nine luxurious four-story townhomes. The townhomes vary between 5,000 square feet and 5,800 square feet, and feature a number of amenities for its residents.
Architects QB3 worked with us through our Design Assist program to find the perfect porcelain panels for this ventilated façade project. They looked through our stone series of porcelain and wanted to create a livelier façade design by using a warmer toned product.
Hudson 36 is a newly constructed high-rise building on 36th Street in Manhattan, New York. It is a 39 story multifamily building that has over 250 rental units, retail space, and more – all with stunning views of the Hudson River.
The building’s façade features over 50,000 square feet of Porcelanosa’s Ark White Bright large format porcelain panels, which features a custom developed color that was created with Ismael Leyva Architects for this project. Porcelanosa Facades’ complementary design assist services, helped achieve the goal to create a unitized facade system with large format porcelain panels.
