Neo Vertika Entrance Roof
Lightweight Manufacturing Inc
The Neo Vertika loft condominium is the latest addition to the Miami River skyline. It features a unique architectural design with exposed basic materials such as concrete, block, steel and glass. A fabric structures with simple lines and pure shape was a natural finishing touch. Exposed galvanized steel beams radiate from the semi-circular entrance in varying angles. The variation angle creates the double curvature shape in the fabric. The fabric connects directly with the steel beams which are suspended from the balconies above. The fabric is tensioned with catenary cables on the front edge. The Neo Vertika project was built by Coastal Construction and the structure was contracted by Signature Structures. Lightweight Manufacturing provided the engineering and fabric panel manufacturing. The fabric is Ferrari 1002 Formula S.
