At the heart of the new BioLegend Headquarters in San Diego, CA, is an atrium space that was engineered, fabricated and installed by Novum. The stunningly transparent atrium consists of a glass roof, a glass soffit and three glass walls that are each over 50’ tall. The use of Novum’s Buttonhead Point Supported Glazing System allows for clean and structure-free glass-to-glass corners at all edges of the atrium. Utilizing Novum Architecturally Exposed Steel, in combination with the Novum Tension Rod System to support the structural glass, minimizes the structural support for the glass cladding. The glass and minimal structure allow for maximum natural light to flood through the atrium creating a unique and inviting space in the heart of the new building.
