To create the sleek, modern aesthetic of the Coffeehouse in Midtown New York City near Penn Station, designers and manufacturers worked to develop a unique ceiling system that highlighted the high-quality design intent. Featuring an intricate, railroad inspired design that reflects the neighboring transportation hub, the ceilings feature a combination of Hunter Douglas's High Profile Series™ Straight Baffle ceiling system and custom High Profile Series™ - Horizontally Curved Baffle ceiling system. Schimenti Construction Company provided general contracting services.
Magnolia Baptist Church
Designed by J7 Architecture in Newport Beach, CA the Magnolia Baptist Church project in Riverside, CA was originally designed around a real wood product, but costs and job site conditions determined it was not economical or feasible to do. The project was designed with 32 individual ceiling clouds, that were radiused around one constant center point. Using torsion spring panels, the ceiling was able to cover just less than 5,000 sf of ceiling space. Architect Terry Jacobson summarized "...the Steel Ceilings, Inc. system looks like wood and gives us the warmth we wanted; the result is both functional and aesthetically beautiful."
