Create a seamless indoor to outdoor material transition
Indoor to outdoor material transition
Historically, building elements that transition from exterior to interior have been a pain point for designers. Soffits, walls, ceilings, canopies, and entryways have had their designs sacrificed in the name of performance, or vice-versa. Materials seem to focus on interior or exterior applications, but often the lack of flexibility is the core of the issue. Today, commercial and residential buildings alike seek seamless transitions between their indoor and outdoor areas to optimize the use of space. Below, we explore some of the more interesting and nuanced ways that projects have achieved material cohesion.
