Residential Perforated Railing

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Phase: Concept Design

We were engaged by a young family seeking to make the railing of their roof deck safer for their energetic young child. We designed a panelized system that could be fit over the existing aluminum tube railing. Intended to be fabricated on a CNC die-punch, we streamlined the pattern so it could be produced with only two custom punches. 

Mill-finish aluminum is a long fascination of mine - think Airstream trailers. As the aluminum weathers, it acquires a grey patina that softens the metallic reflectiveness.
