Montecito Office Building

SEM
Architects in Denver, CO designed the striking Montecito Office Building in Las
Vegas, NV utilizing Arriscraft Renaissance® units as an integral part of the
exterior façade to achieve their design vision. According to Todd Decker with
SEM, the overall design of the Montecito Office Building reflects upon
traditional design principles using a base, middle and top. The base is
accented with large, two-story windows and stone pilasters while the middle
portion of the building uses a variety of horizontal window patterns. The upper
portion incorporates intricately detailed metal panels along with integral
sunshade devices to create an iconic image on the skyline. The design focuses
on emphasizing the plan articulation and fenestration pattern. Therefore a
relatively tight skin was in order, and ARRIS-tile was a perfect fit as a
result.

According
to Decker, they wanted to maintain a uniform finish plane for the skin with a
rich pedestrian scaled finish at the base transitioning to a more monolithic
finish above. This was achieved by combining thin-set adhered ARRIS.tile with
synthetic stucco. By using ARRIS.tile along the other components, the detailing
of stud placement, sheathing, weather barriers, openings, etc. remained
consistent throughout the wall assembly making construction and detailing
simple.
