Panels create fun look for school project

January 01, 2010 |
paw2The Beth Tfiloh Lower School in Baltimore was moving from an attractive off-site location to the Hebrew school's main campus and wanted its new building to be engaging for the students. About 8,500 sf of Dri-Design panels finished in three complementary colors and installed in a checkerboard pattern helped to achieve the desired effect. “We wanted a high caliber of architectural design and function—so that led to looking at the materials pretty carefully,” said Michael Poness, AIA, design principal, WMCRP Architects, Landover, Md. The panels blended in nicely with the Jerusalem Stone masonry of the new building, Poness said. “The masonry at the front is meant to recall the kind of materials used throughout the Middle East and particularly Israel. All of the children at the school will travel to Israel at some time, so the intent was to have the architecture reflect what they will see there,” Poness said.
