This aggressively scheduled project required a coordinated team approach from design development through completion. Spearhead worked seamlessly with Olson Kundig Architects throughout the design and build process to ensure direct interface between design and fabrication. Through a deliberately integrated approach we were able to virtually eliminate redundancy and re-work in design development by interfacing our digital fabrication model with the architectural design model. This process enabled immediate and direct manufacturing input and constructability review current with design development. This project has won multiple design awards and has been featured in several acclaimed publications.
