Montes Urales 125
Beautiful sunscreen with Architectural Mesh.
The former residential building from 1950 is located in Mexico, more precisely on the thoroughfare Montes Urales - between Paseo de la Reforma and Palmas. The architects of Archetonic recognized the potential of the building and they had the vision to rebuild it into their company´s headquarters. It was important to them to preserve the house in its original proportions and to give it added value and a cutting-edged look.
For the façade of the building, the architects searched for a suitable material that looks visual appealing and offers at the same time good sun protection. The architects decided for a metal wire mesh cladding made of Architectural Mesh EGLA-MONO 4991 by HAVER & BOECKER.
Due to the smooth surface the metal mesh weave type EGLA-MONO has got a flat and homogeneous appearance. The HAVER Architectural Mesh EGLA-MONO 4991 is a filigree wire mesh with semi-transparency, that offers good views from inside to outside. In addition to a very nice appearance the wire mesh EGLA-MONO 4991 ensures - with an open area of 54 % - good sun protection.
170 m² of stainless steel wire mesh EGLA-MONO 4991 decorates the main façade with elements of 1.70 m width and up to 9 m length. HAVER & BOECKER supplied ready to install mesh elements, including the fixing technology of tension profiles, clevis screws and pressure springs.
