'Pure White Ecoresin™' by 3form

Restoring two adjacent lobbies of the outdated 1980s Adam Place office building in Massachusetts, USA the internationally operating architects of Perkins + Will wanted to achieve a powerful transformation without the cost and time required for a complete overhaul. Focusing on the unattractive exposed elevators, the team at Perkins + Will chose to update the with a, visually dynamic solution for concealing the outdated glass cabs.

For 1 Adams Place the team suspended 3form Varia Ecoresin panels in a vertical layered pattern. The spacing and depth was controlled to create, along with the nuanced neutral color choices, a sculptural cascade of color and form enhanced by the unexpected elevator movement from within. The effect is a remarkable modern appearance with contemporary industrial flavor.

For 2 Adams Place, the team built on the concept of the vertical grill, but chose a softer, more ethereal approach to the façade. The design called for 3form Varia Ecoresin in brilliant Pure White to emulate billowing ship sails. Architects chose 3form Scultural Form Legato in alternating formation to easily, and effectively, create a traditional basket-weave pattern. The panels were installed on 4 vertical I-beams using 3form Cable Hardware. 3form Architecture department provided consultation and assistance with digital data modeling and structural design to ensure flowing movement and minimal visible hardware.
