levi hall quad portal at university of chicago

Location: Chicago, IL
Architect: Krueck + Sexton

VS1 was selected by the design team to create a portal through Levi Hall. The system's clean aesthetic and ability to achieve the desired saw-toothed wall geometry of the lobby facades were key design goals that were met. The concealed toggle attachment detail was utilized at the lateral pinch plate fittings to eliminate all external metal. A photographic custom frit pattern was applied to the lobby glass panels to enhance the wall performance and create a very clean aesthetic appearance to the glass walls. A cutting edge 21st century architectural statement was made at this historic campus.
