Children’s Hospital

A beautifully detailed canopy cantilevers 15ft on each side of a central beam which is curved in plan and marries well to the building behind it. Novum intricately developed a custom box section to conceal the lights inside the beam, illuminating the canopy at night. Architectural appeal of the canopy is enhanced by glass which has a custom frit of leaves that renders closely to Autumn season. The ECG glass fitting elevates the glass from the steel and uses silicone joints for weather tightness.
