Project of the Month

Contemporary, Curvy Curtainwall Creates Comfortable, Sustainable,
Luxury Residences

Designed by Pappageorge Haymes Partners, the curved, jewel-like exterior of 465 North Park Apartments in Chicago is comprised of several EFCO products. EFCO used a combination of Technoform’s polyamide thermal barrier and plastic hybrid stainless steel (PHSS) warm edge TGI-Spacer M to meet the project’s specified aesthetics, thermal performance, durability and sustainability. The property is pursuing Gold certification through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system. For the building’s first and second floor lobby and main entrance, EFCO provided nearly 12,000 square feet of 5600 curtainwall. More than 5,000 windows and 200 doors were installed using EFCO’s 450X and OG45 window wall, and T450-I Terrastile doors on the tower balconies and D300 storefront doors on the entries.
