New Project: Griffin Middle School

New Project: Griffin Middle School

In Frisco, Texas, the new Griffin Middle School campus was designed with modern education in mind, focusing on small learning communities within the school, as well as spaces for larger group gatherings. Spanning over 180,000 square-feet over two stories, the high-traffic areas require durable materials that can withstand the wear and tear of daily school activities.

Banker Wire’s architectural woven wire mesh pattern FPZ-16 was chosen by designers for both its sturdiness as well as it’s aesthetic benefits. The iconic curved glass front of the building, as well as the numerous broad windows, create an airy atmosphere in the school’s main hall. FPZ-16’s 66.5% open area produces a strong barrier to ensure the safety of the students without obstructing the flow of natural light, enhancing the open concept design.

The stainless steel finish of the metal mesh infill, u-edge frames, and rounded hand rails composes a cohesive structure that compliments the other surrounding materials; wood paneling, tile and brick. The polished silver tones of the railings reflect the brilliant lighting, bringing an additional luster to the space.  With the combination of flat top and plain crimp wires, the highlights and shadows of FPZ-16 develop a texture and depth that shifts with the viewer’s perspective.

Banker’s wire mesh can be found in many areas of Griffin Middle School, the most prominent being the grand staircase-seating combination in the main common area. Though the frames of the infill panels here align with the slope of the stairs, the wire mesh itself sits parallel to the steps, adding visual interest to the application. The accompanying wire mesh railings across the school follow the same fo... Continue reading
