Project: 181 Fremont
Location: San Francisco
Architect: Heller Manus Architects
Client: Jay Paul Company
Every square-inch of 181 Fremont’s 435,000 square-feet was engineered for superior performance, including the innovative, unitized curtainwall system featuring Solarban® 70 glass by Vitro Architectural Glass. The resilient façade that can handle high wind forces and seismic events up to 8.0 magnitude.
The design creates a sawtooth pattern throughout the curtainwall that acts as a passive solar design system with angled window mullions turned slightly inward to face one another. Completed in May of 2018, the building’s office space has been fully leased by Facebook.
