Structural Workshop LLC was proud to be the Engineer for this truly one of a kind structure that had many unique features and challenges. The structure contains a 2 story vaulted open space that relies on structural steel rigid frames to resist gravity and lateral loads. The ends are all glass and needed to be supported with a structural steel backup system. The 2 story space contains a floating staircase leading to a floating “cube” that is hung from the rigid frames. Both the support system and lateral bracing system for the cube are hidden so the cube appears to float.
