Located in downtown Asheville, this high rise detention facility is clad in a masonry veneer to match the adjacent government buildings. American Metalcraft's metal panels, add visual interest by creating a strong contrast to the masonry veneer. The metal panel system accentuates the rhythm of the floor plan and the glazing system.

The main entry canopy has fascia and soffit panels, beam and column wraps, sunscreen elements at the windows, and a sculptured "dish" element at the low roof.  The upper portion of the building has long tapered fin columns as well as horizontal beam elements between the fins.

American Metalcraft, Inc. fabricated the panels between the glazing to be included in a storefront system from Efco. These horizontal panels at the floor line were fabricated with a "picture frame" extrusion attached. The picture frame extrusion replicated the appearance of a traditional window detail while still allowing the designer to work with aluminum. The choice of an aluminum panel infill that matches the storefront system insures the metal will weather at the same rate.  

The storefront system includes pilasters at the mid-span of the lintel above the glazing. The capitals and bases for these pilasters were attached in the AMI shop and shipped to the site for installation. The pilasters provide even more relief in the building's elevation and create the appearance that the span of the lintel above the glazing is only half its actual span.

The building envelope of the School of Architecture, uses a number of materials and systems. American Metalcraft Inc. fabricated the aluminum plate panel system visable in the photos to the right. The white panel system is only used to protect multi-story interior spaces. It includes a series of horizontal elements that shade the spaces from high sun angles of the late spring and summer seasons.  These horizontal elements occur at each floor.

The silver panel elements are integrated into the glazing system at the studio levels of the building. The panels are finished to match the mullions of the glazing system and the interior fin tube heating system installed flush against the glazing. Although there are three separate systems, they appear to be one system.

American Metalcraft, Inc. used mirror polished stainless steel to fabricate beam and column wraps for the  entry canopy and front entrance of the building. The mirror polished stainless steel provides a contract to the white metal panel system. To create a connection between the building cladding and interior details, the mirror polished stainless steel was also used to fabricate interior canopies.
