For more than a century, the Aston Martin name has been synonymous with excellence in the field of automotive design and is one of the most iconic and recognizable brands in the world. For its vision of Aston Martin residences in downtown Miami Florida, Aston Martin partnered with renowned developer G&G Business Developments LLC to translate its legendary design into exclusive condominiums.
For this project we signed a design assist contract to develop a screen system that would meet the aesthetics and performance requirements of the Aston Martin brand. The system is to be installed over the 15 levels of parking garage, totaling 50,000 square feet, and is a major element of the iconic tower. The product we designed has and advantage because it totally reduces the visibility or light transmittance, all while maintaining a free area percentage of 40%. This was achieved with a staggered louver system connected to vertical studs along the façade. This project has the structural advantage of being very light, providing ease of installation and reducing stress on the structure that supports the facade.
