Architects Turn to Móz Designs for College Campus Mural

Lone Star College
Lone Star College-Kingwood has recently completed their Process Technology Building, the first addition to a Campus Center located in Generation Park. Lone Star College picked the location for the building—a large industrial development in Houston—so it would stand near the energy/chemical processing industry it supports. Realized by WHR/EYP Architects with help from Perkins+Will as interior design consultants, the new facility stands out for its unique combination of industrial and traditional building materials.

 

“Móz was the perfect fit,” explains Julie Gauthier of Perkins+Will. “Working with their digital graphics team and exploring different material substrates eased the entire process.”

 

The clean and minimalist design of the building—which is home to educational programs that focus on process technology and operations for the plastics, food & beverage, and the pharmaceutical industries—perfectly complements the training that happens within its walls. The selection of perforated metal for the large mural was made intentionally, as a way to utilize a versatile industrial material in a uniquely modern way. Designers continued the theme throughout the space with similar material selections and bright colors—familiar in a variety of industrial sites—to highlight specific spaces and act as wayfinding elements throughout the space.

 

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the metal mural also functions as the backdrop for a social gathering space for students, staff, and faculty, thanks to a built-in bench seat for visitors.

 

Móz Designs perforated metal sheets come in solid-core .063” aluminum material and 4’ x 10’ sheet sizes. Móz also offers a variety of standard and custom digital imagery

options. Perforated metal sheets are also offered in an extensive range of colors, including options from their Classic, Gradients, Blendz/Patina, Graphix, and Powder Coat collections. Custom colors and sizes are also available.
