Crocker Park is a mixed-use development that includes American Greeting Cards’ headquarters and two large parking garages in Westlake, Ohio. Structurflex engineered, fabricated, and installed a permanent architectural façade screening system that reduces light pollution from car and garage lights and eliminated the need for mechanical ventilation.
A tensile mesh was fabricated and printed with custom graphics that supported the overall look and feel of Crocker Park. The fabric mesh is tensioned with a perimeter aluminum framing extrusion system mounted to the face of the parking garage. This system maintained views out, maintained airflow, and reduced solar gain.
An advanced UV ink technology was used to print the “forest” onto the tensile mesh, providing a visually appealing alternative to a traditional parking structure facade.
