McCarran International Airport
Las Vegas, Nevada | Interior Shade Panels
For the Terminal 3 expansion, interior mesh panels along gate corridor windows provide solar shading for passengers and airport employees. While reducing glare and heat gain, the horizontal and vertical panels provide natural daylighting and unobstructed views of the Las Vegas Strip. In addition, mesh installed on a new parking garage and utility plant offers security and fall protection on stair towers.
"I wanted a material that would not detract from the project concept of natural geological shifting masses. To me, the stainless steel mesh has a natural flowing quality similar to water on ice."
