Architects Pickard Chilton and Kendall/Heaton Associates wanted to create a stunning lobby façade along the base of a new high rise in downtown Houston for Hines Development. To provide the most transparent solution, the team decided to use a Novum cable wall solution. On the vertical walls of the lobby façade, a Novum Tension Cable System is used to support the glass. The 36mm diameter stainless steel cables disappear behind the vertical glass joints. The glass is supported with a Novum Point Supported Glass System attached to stainless steel cast glazing arms. The entire wall system is less than 6-3/4” in depth, resulting in more useable lobby space for its owner.
