Anodized aluminum façade renewed with field-applied coating application

The façade restoration of 610 Newport Center Drive in Newport Beach, Calif., really impressed the 2020 Metal Architecture Design Award Judges. As Stephen Van Dyck, AIA, LEED AP, partner at LMN Architects in Seattle, noted, “This one is just awesome. They nailed the recreation, the restoration of the design intent. It’s all metal. It’s holistic. It’s the entire project, and they really restored the original intent. I don’t think there’s anything else to say.”
