Frameless Track Rail Complements Lg North American Headquarters

September 17, 2020 comm ARCH

Positioned on the rocky precipices of Englewood Cliffs, N.J., and nearly 500 feet above the Hudson River is the new, sustainably designed LG North American Headquarters. 

The office building is longer than it is tall to protect and preserve the scenic views of the historic Pacific Palisades that surround the office campus. To complement the glass building and further reduce visual impacts, design elements were carefully chosen, including more than 1,3000 linear feet of Trex Commercial Products’ frameless glass Track Rail. 

Among the highlights of the open-concept building is a ceremonial curved staircase, created by Trex Commercial Products using HDS technology to 3-D scan the structure and deliver a custom-fabricated design.

Researchers are discovering that wood can contribute to the health and wellbeing of building occupants. While many people would agree that wood is visually pleasing, its aesthetic properties affect humans on a deeper level. Can the use of natural elements in building design enhance moods and reduce stress? Can they improve focus, creating environments that enhance productivity and learning? In this white paper, we’ll examine the benefits of an emerging design approach, and the science behind it
