Skyhouse River Oaks
THE CUSTOM ENGINEERING ON THE SKYHOUSE RIVER OAKS’ POOL DECK WINDSCREENS WAS A BREEZE FOR KANE INNOVATIONS’ DESIGN TECHNICIANS.
When Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart and Associates Architects requested concealed fasteners for the pool deck windscreen system on the new SkyHouse River Oaks condominium, the Kane Innovations crew quickly came to the rescue with a hidden hardware solution, while still fulfilling the 200-pound loading requirement. To amp up the streamlined look, the standard black glazing was switched out for a custom shade to match Sterling’s non-standard “clear anodized effect” powder coat paint color. These smart tweaks resulted in a safe, beautiful, unobstructed view of the downtown Houston skyline.
Other Kane Innovations products featured on the project include the Classic picket and Chesterfield glass railing systems, all coated with the same paint color as the top-floor terrace windscreens.
Sterling Dula brand railing products can be found on two other SkyHouse properties in the United States including SkyHouse Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia, and the near-complete SkyHouse Denver in Colorado.
The 352-unit luxury apartment tower officially opened to residents in mid-August 2015.
