I recently had the pleasure of working with Glancey Rockwell and Associates Architecture firm in Boise. They had recently completed a project for Aviation Specialties Unlimited, ASU need to expand their hanger for research and production of night vision for aircraft. This resulted in a 27,000 sq. ft. Facility, including office space and a hanger solution.
I knew this project would be a challenge. The building itself is basically a large barn. While scouting the location, I noted the subtle parts that stood out to me...the aluminum around the entry, the large bay door. Additionally there were some really cool aircraft available to fill in the hanger space for context. I concentrated on adding mood to the spaces and highlighting the unique features with depth and clarity.
