The Gold Standard of Metal Facades

Alchemy, from which we derive our name, was the precursor to chemistry. A discipline founded during the Middle Ages, it was associated with the goal to transform base materials into gold. This “transformation” was attempted in a variety of ways, on a variety of metals—hence the expression “turning lead into gold.”

For this project, the designers wanted a facade that would complement the Ombrae panel system it sits beside. With four coats of custom gold paint on two different panel profiles, we achieved a precious metal glow. A standard roll form solution couldn’t provide the desired warm metallic shimmer, but LKMe brake formed panels could, offering the design flexibility to turn metal into gold.
