(Washington DC) May 2023 — At the Southwest Neighborhood Library in Washington DC, Perkins + Will DC specified Móz Perforated metal panels to clad the library’s central staircase with a custom digital overlay of the community’s historic waterfront. With the capabilities of our Digital Graphix Collection, the installation pays homage to the historic neighborhood while bringing rich texture and personality to the library’s interior.
Spanning over 1,400 square feet, Móz’s innovative solution is comprised of multi-layered sheets that combine the luminosity of their metal with digital imagery and graphic patterns for a striking architectural feature. Greeting visitors as they enter the space, the library’s design places an emphasis on connection to the surrounding community while honoring its heritage. The project was the recipient of the AIA 2023 Interior Architecture Award.
