Featured Project: Franklin Square
In this issue of US Glass Magazine, our work on Franklin Square was featured alongside our #27 slot. Kensington Glass Arts worked with Harvey Cleary and Hickok Cole to install a new front entrance at this historic building in Washington, DC. This historic building was built in 1989 and sits across from Franklin Square Park. Overall, Kensington Glass Arts played a pivotal role in the historic Franklin Square renovation. KGa’s glass helped provide a light and airy feel by letting natural light enhance the features of the Franklin Square building. To learn more about this project, visit our Success Stories page now!
Featured Project: Whittle School & Studios
Meanwhile, in this issue of Glass Magazine, KGa’s work on the first North American campus at Whittle School & Studios was featured. KGa worked with Turner Construction Company, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, and Ayers Saint Gross to install over 200 clear tempered glass doors with sidelites, consisting of 11 different hardware types installed at the atrium stairs and corridors. In addition, KGa installed the glass at the Choral Hall, Black Box, and Performance Theater. At the 2-story gym, KGa provided and installed the glass doors around the 7th floor. In the existing Atrium, KGa replaced the glass dome/roof areas with louvers while in the dormitories we installed operable window units to replace the original fixed glass.
