Natural and discrete. That was the theme of this metal building project. This project provided a unique challenge as its location put it in the heart of the Historical Old North End of Colorado Springs. This location in central Colorado Springs provides its residents and visitors a unique and historic feel to the area. That is why this metal building had to provide a deviation from the traditional metal siding and roof look. The design team set out to wrap the exterior of the building with vertical lap siding, masonry wains coat, large surface-mounted barn doors, and a weathered core-ten metal roof. All of these features were to provide a rural barn look that complements the surrounding area.
