When designing the new OMNI Outpatient Surgery Center, Bennetts & Huysman Architects, PC veered off the path of traditional enclosure elements and aesthetics to grant it a new, unique identity. Formawall insulated metal panels were used to transform the building’s façade into a work of metal art.

While the low silhouette of the building provides its own distinct identity, color was used to truly differentiate the building. The façade showcases the visually stunning Kolorshift metal coating system. Kolorshift changes hues with varying angles of light, effectively shifting from one color to the next as light strikes its sleek surface.

Influence Culture Through Design

Design Innovation

Celebrating the rich artistic history of San Antonio, the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts was designed to reflect the city’s Spanish Colonial style in a way that is relevant to current and future generations. To achieve these goals, the owners turned to a design team led by Seattle-based LMN Architects.

The solution was to blend existing building elements with a metallic veil that reflects the sky and the surrounding structures. In the evening, programmable LED lights cast eye-catching light displays on the metallic surface. The system is backed by CENTRIA’s MetalWrap insulated composite backup panels, providing a complete wall system with thermal and moisture performance.
