Interior Plate Steel Cladding - Hand selected hot-finished steel plate

Sarabi Studio custom fabricated over 50 individual pieces of steel plate from hand selected hot finished sheets for this architectural steel cladding project. Each 1/8" thick plate was cut to the exact size, drilled and countersunk to fit seamlessly into its place. The wall, spanning nearly 40' from end to end, served as a dividing wall between the main great room and the bed rooms behind. The wall is clad not only on the front face, it is also fully clad across the back side of the wall that forms the hall leading to the other rooms. The columns, originally round structural pipe, are also fully wrapped in plate steel to lend a seamless and uniform finished appearance.
