Panorama Office Building Renovation and Addition


Beyond being a visual success the new Office remodel preserved an architectural legacy in that many of the buildings innovative mechanical design concepts were preserved and upgraded. The original building's mechanical system employed a ground water heat exchange loop system employing technical innovations that would soon after be employed by the same engineer in the Commonwealth Building designed by Pietro Bulleschi, notable as the first fully enclosed metal and glass curtain walled building in the United States, built in 1948, Portland Oregon. The last picture is a photo of the 1948 Commonwealth Building with new urban sidewalk landscaping by SOM.
