For Stanton Optical, Bradshaw & Associates partnered with Dryvit, Polar Supply and Plasterers Local #867 to create a unique and modern structure showcasing the many facets of EIFS.
Coved white panels with 3-inch-deep orange grooves and 3-inch radiuses come painstakingly together in over 250 intersections all laid-out, meshed and finished.
Starting in September 2015, the team completed the work through the beginning of winter, which required bagging and heating the job. The result is eye-catching and impressive, with locals nicknaming it Rubik’s Cube.
Judge’s comment: “The outside-the-box thinking by the project team and the versatility of EIFS created a unique exterior cladding for this structure. The use of EIFS, along with exceptional workmanship, produced an energy-efficient and exciting exterior system.”
