CONSTRUCTION

While each of the development team’s buildings boast elements of architectural innovation, the Element’s postmodern aesthetic and staggered design required RYBAK and BK to conceive and construct a truly one-of-a-kind, progressive concrete façade.
Cast-in-place concrete facades last longer, requiring less maintenance while offering enhanced strength, water/fire resistance, temperature/noise insulation, and design flexibility. These advantages are well known to developers throughout the city, but it takes bold vision, careful planning, and expert execution to cast the leaning facades and cantilever walls that realize the Element’s daring contour.
