4. Transcend the Ordinary with Bold Aluminum Cladding Color

More than just a first impression, the exterior of a building contains many functional aspects. It has to protect the interior from wind, sun, rain and snow, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Today’s exterior envelopes are a blend of innovative design materials that combine form and function to create a truly unique design, and exterior cladding contributes to both the design and functional performance.

Using aluminum exterior wall panels, today’s designers aren’t settling for typical exterior cladding systems. Instead, they are using the flexibility of aluminum products to design stunning exterior walls and create exteriors that are nearly works of art. To achieve this level of functionality and artistic beauty, designers are turning to Graphic Perf® Solutions Exterior which offers two paths to making metal your canvas — Photoreal and Scripted, as well as the Arktura Solutions Studio® for custom designs that can meet the individual needs of each building.

2. Create Three Dimensional Facades Inspired by Abstract Art

The Tesla auto showroom exterior in Santa Monica, CA draws inspiration from the company’s namesake, Nikola Tesla, as well as magnetic flux diagrams to create an inspired design.

With this inspiration in mind, Arktura utilized our proprietary software to customize our exterior Graphic Perf® Scripted system and create this system of complex curves. This design isn’t just for show, however. The exterior facade helps to filter heat and sunlight as well as a rain shield all while enhancing the Tesla brand and being a visual representation of their concept. “Modern Sitting Area” Featuring: Graphic Perf® Solutions Exterior by Arktura.

3. To Clad or Not to Clad?

Not only does this design create a stunning exterior, but the occupants also benefit from the one-of-a-kind design. The exterior facade paired with exterior glass windows creates a space where natural light permeates into the interior to create playful patterns throughout. “Elysian Fields” Los Angeles, CA, Warren Techentin Architecture, Inc., Featuring: Exterior Graphic Perf® by Arktura. The Elysian Fields apartment building in Los Angeles, CA showcases an abstract rendering that pays homage to nearby auto body shops.

The Exterior Graphic Perf® aluminum exterior wall panel provides protection from sun and wind for its residents. To create space for the expansive sliding windows to open, flared voids were created around each window, creating a look reminiscent of abstract art. “Brick and Machine”, Culver City, CA, Abramson Architects, Featuring: Solutions Studio® by Arktura.
