Chicago Rooftop Garden: Designer Wire Mesh modern-deck
 

Chicago Rooftop Garden: Designer Wire Mesh

The garden panels were assembled with two goals in mind - to help conceal the roof's mechanical equipment and create a contemporary sculpture. The framed Stainless Steel wire mesh panels were fabricated in varying heights, widths and textures and positioned along the rooftop to replicate Chicago's urban skyline. McNICHOLS® Wire Mesh panels include a combination of three different patterns from the Designer Metals line.

McNICHOLS® Chateau 3110, Chateau 3105, and Aura 8155 all provide sufficient openings to circulate exhaust, yet were solid enough to obscure the equipment. The Stainless material was lightweight enough to be fabricated off-site, yet sturdy enough to withstand the climate extremes of Chicago. To compliment the rooftop garden panels, the Stainless Mesh was also used for infill panels along the roof's perimeter.

The 70 panels varied in size from 42 to 62 inches in height and 24 to 72 inches in width. The project required a total of 1,250 square feet.

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The ‘Disappearing’ Guardrail
Mesh comes in varying densities, patterns and gauges. I love how these guards mimic buildings in the city skyline. McNichols Company is an excellent source for this material. Peruse their website to get an idea for the wide-ranging selection available.
