Sander Architects were approached to be the industrial design architects on a project to enclose an existing recycling center that is in continuous use 24/7. As part of their mandate to improve the neighborhood, the client, new owners of the business, agreed to enclose the site. Sander Architects proposed creating a building that would be utilitarian and beautiful, with the simple addition of large-scale super-graphics that reference the green leaf in the client’s logo.
The challenge of constructing a 260,000 sf building, while the site is in constant operation, makes this project unusual. Solving the logistics is definitely part of the pleasure of working on this project.
