A select portfolio of college and university architectural projects featuring Cambridge's metal mesh.


Facades | Solar Shading | Branding

Taylor Family Digital Library, University of Calgary, Alberta

Metal mesh lends an interesting and beautiful dimension to the library’s aesthetic quality. We provided a complete engineered system that reduces glare and solar heat gain into the Informational Commons -- a glassed-in area for students to learn and relax -- while providing ambient daylight and unobstructed views of the quad.

Mesh Pattern: Mid-Balance
Attachment System:  Eclipse
United States Air Force Academy Holaday Athletic Center, Colorado Springs, CO
Gleaming diamond-shaped mesh panels control sun glare while allowing views of the Rockies from within the year-round practice facility for varsity teams. The translucent panels complement the angular lines of the iconic USFA chapel and capture 100% of natural light.
Mesh Pattern:  Thatch
Attachment System:  U-Binding and Flat Bar Frame
Cecil College Engineering and Math Building, North East, MD
Nineteen massive mesh sunscreens create a dramatic visual effect at this center for STEM education and training. Superior to louvers, the mesh provides solar shading over the west-facing façade where the sun shines in at a horizontal angle.
Mesh Pattern:  Cubist
Attachment System: Eclipse 
Texas A&M University Memorial Student Center, College Station, TX
Beautiful mesh fabric blast-etched with the school seal greets students daily. The expansive panels shine with the exterior sunlight but shade the interior without obstructing views. Complementary stairwell and balcony infills incorporate mesh and maintain continuity of design while offering fall protection. 
Mesh Pattern:  Graph
Attachment System:  Rigid Mesh in tension; U-Binding
