VELUX's Pinnacle 350 Structural Ridge System was chosen for its large span capability, variable-pitch hinge design, and fast on-site assembly and installation.

Challenge

Building 18, formerly a metal foundry in Philadelphia’s abandoned navy yards, needed extensive renovations to be converted into work spaces for Urban Outfitters Anthropologie brand.

Attaching the massive metal skylight structure to the curbing and integrating with the roof posed a special engineering challenge. Another challenge was providing a design that met the National Park Service’s stringent standards for historic renovation.

Solution

“The stunning [Pinnacle 350 Structural Ridge] skylight was the predominant feature, which raised the design to a whole other level,” said David Ziel, Urban Outfitters chief development officer.

The National Park Service uses this building project as a prototype for exemplary historical restoration.
