Parking With Style

Fabricoil coiled-wire fabric defines style and a modern aesthetic for a Nashville parking structure.

Coiled-wire fabric defines the architectural style of the parking garage and conveys a clean and modern aesthetic.

Cascade Architectural, Tualatin, OR (cascadearchitectural.com), provided 4,000 sq. ft. of 1/4-in., 16-gauge stainless-steel fabric for the new parking garage on the campus of HCA Healthcare, Nashville, TN. The coiled-wire fabric defines the architectural style of the parking garage and conveys a clean and modern aesthetic.

Cascade Architectural’s technical team pre-engineered the Borderline attachment units so they could be bolted directly to the concrete of the garage upon delivery.

The site of the parking garage is in an urban overlay zone, requiring the building’s design to abide by a specific set of urban overlay standards. The standards required that the garage have an articulated façade to minimize the visual impact of the structure and add life to the street.

Fabricoil coiled-wire fabric secured in a Borderline attachment system—a perimeter only, powder-coated carbon-steel frame with top and bottom rods that tension the fabric—was used for the project. Panels range from 19 to 28 ft. tall and were tensioned at the Oregon facility before delivery to Nashville. Cascade’s technical team pre-engineered the Borderline attachment units so they could be bolted directly to the concrete of the garage upon delivery. The material is simultaneously open and closed, providing a barrier that gives occupants visibility out, provides fall protection, and allows ventilation throughout the garage.

“The design included an upgraded façade for the garage, and Cascade provided a turn-key solution that aesthetically achieved the design,” said Virginia Campbell, design principal at architecture and design firm, Collaborative Studio, Nashville.
