“Our offices are in this building, and we didn't want to block the windows in any way,” says Bellomo. “With the Solucent system installed, we cut down on the light - but the views are not mitigated whatsoever.”

The Solucent system was fabricated with mesh in Cambridge's Mid-Balance pattern, which features flexible open weaves that shade and screen structures including facades, parking garages and pavilions.

Construction on 116 University Avenue was completed in April 2007. The project team consists of architect Joseph Bellomo Architects, Palo Alto, CA, and its affiliate company 102 Workshop, which acted as the contractor.

Cambridge Architectural is an active member of the USGBC, and helps architects take maximum advantage of LEED credit through the many categories in which architectural mesh systems apply. Most notably, mesh can contribute to as many as four LEED points for optimized energy performance, and can help in acquiring additional points for incorporating recycled content and introducing daylight and views into the regularly occupied areas of a building.
