It was eother laser cut or cut with a water jet. You could punch the with a die but there is too much distortion in the metal. We needed these to be as flaty as possible.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to In the City
I think the warmth of htis modern space is amazing. Sometimes minimal architecture leaves me cold, but this home's use of rich wood and large windows is inviting and friendly - and surprising in the midst of a gray city street.
Becky Harris added this to Get the Look: Industrial Chic
Think about industrial materials for your exterior. This is one extreme example...
I picked this picture just to show interesting contemporary materials. Perhaps the chimney could be encased in metal someday?
This townhouse designed by Jim Jennings confronts its industrial area with a Cor-Ten steel facade. One half is highlighted by translucent glass, which extends behind the perforated steel panels to hint at the light-filled house within. The initial design coincided with the Dot-com Bubble and it is even located in the city's South of Market area, home to many of the tech start-ups at the time. In the years since, the "ceaseless graffiti" of the neighborhood led the architect to replace the Cor-Ten steel with stainless steel. Needless to say, it is hard to remove spray paint from a layer of rust.
This San Francisco house, featured in my ideabook on Cor-Ten Steel has since been remodeled into a stainless steel facade. It illustrates an extreme way of creating privacy for the occupants. Perforated steel and translucent glass only hint at what is going on behind it. Not appearing like a typical house, it could be just about anything. A yard in the back and skylights above bring daylight and outdoor space to the residents.
Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: Heavy and Light
Corten steel, a type of weathering steel in which natural rust actually protects the steel for the long term, is used very effectively in this design as a frame around a large window wall, and as a perforated skin in front of the other glass opening. The deep rich color evokes a minimal and monumental presence in this urban streetscape.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Many Highlights of Translucency
PrivacyUsed in urban environments, where privacy and natural lighting demands often intersect, translucent glass satisfies both requirements. Note the subtle reflections in the glass, which give away the fact that this glass is etched or sandblasted on one side only. Positioning the unetched or polished face of the glass toward the exterior allows it to be easily cleaned in an environment that’s sure to see lots of dirt and grime.
