The unique architectural design of the Argo at Tempe Town apartment complex included 90-foot “sails” as part of the structure. The rainscreen attachment system with the Envelope 2000 panels from Citadel Architectural Products ensured a durable, watertight and attractive detail, welcoming residents and visitors.
“When the building sails were incorporated into the built structure as it exists today, metal panels were chosen for many reasons,” says Cliff Coffaro, RA, LEED AP BD+C, of Todd & Associates in Phoenix. “The metal panels are a clean, durable, true, smooth material, integrally colored, giving color options. The metal panels are also a solid material for securing the building’s waterproofing and HVAC requirements.”
