Overview

The central atrium of 800 Yates St. office building features a 7,200 sq. ft glass skylight supported by a series of 60 ft. long custom lenticular shaped timber roof trusses. We call the concept "SpaceLam". The visual transparency of this unusual configuration provides a lightness and unique aesthetic to the overall roof structure.
