Architectural Wrap Creates Picture WindowOctober 14th, 2010 | Category: Industry News
A recent project involving the installation of an architectural wrap created a real picture window at Café 1700, located within the Sarasota Memorial Hospital in Sarasota, Fla. The café faced a design dilemma because just outside its wall of windows was a construction area. Wanting to disguise the undesirable scenery, the café management considered using hurricane shutters or an opaque film, but decided against both.
After filling in Solar-X of Sarasota on the problem, the company installed an architectural wrap, featuring images of Tuscany, to hide the exterior view and provide some color and excitement to the windows. The finished project combined both opaque window film and printed material to create the change in scenery as well as keep costs low for the hospital and Café 1700.
“When you enter the 1700 Café, you feel as though you are not in the hospital anymore. The design and decor give visitors an opportunity to escape the reason they are in the hospital in the first place,” says Brian Gregg, senior sales representative at Solar-X of Sarasota. “I have personally made many visits to the cafe for a bite or to get away from the hospital environment for a few minutes. The new graphics are a welcomed addition to the decor and the visitors are all enjoying the tranquil scenes of Tuscany.”
