Entry Description

Working in conjunction with Hunter Douglas Ceilings group, HOK’s client-specific ceiling design required a robust yet precise, point-accessible baffle ceiling system for Phoenix’s new landmark, 44th Street PHX SkyTrain station. Developed through a process of mockups and collaboration with trades and contractors, HOK led the design, construction and manufacturing team with the approval of an instrumental sliding attachment device for the extruded aluminum aero-shaped baffles. Hunter Douglas produced this new system for the project's 3-level, 33,600 SF installation at ceiling heights ranging from 10’ to 40’, while allowing service trades constant point-access in ceiling openings created by the sliding attachment device.
