MUKWONAGO, WI — As the first new high-rise office building in San Antonio, Texas in 30 years, Frost Tower offers over 460,000 square feet of Class A+ office and retail space. The expansive ground-level lobby welcomes employees and guests with dramatic design elements including feature walls, creatively adorned with Banker Wire’s architectural woven wire mesh.
As an extremely versatile material, architectural wire mesh from Banker Wire is available in thousands of patterns—the perfect medium to satisfy any project regardless of function or aesthetic. For this particular application, the design concept by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects called for a stunning wall covering that would provide visual interest with a glowing effect. Therefore, the design team thoughtfully chose Banker Wire’s M22-80 woven wire mesh pattern, which offers the ability to mix alloys to bring out a new dimension of texture and color characteristics that are unique to woven wire mesh.

The depth and movement of the beautifully contrasting woven wires dynamically change as the viewer’s perspective changes. The color visuals transition in and out from being completely separated to a combined balance of silver and gold tones.
To enhance the color and sparkling visual effect, custom mirror panels spanning 28 feet high were placed several inches behind the wire mesh to leverage the mix of alloys, lighting, and unique pairing of finishes. The open percentage of the M22-80 pattern creates a do... Continue reading
