Novum engineered and built this majestic circular glass and steel façade for the renovation of an office building in downtown Houston. Novum used suspended horizontal girts and point supported glass to create a highly transparent and technical façade that did not impose undesirable forces on the existing building structure. The unique shape of the façade—curved in plan with V-shaped inset entrances on opposite sides of the building—was achieved with curved steel and segmented glass panels.
