Tall office draws attention

Calpo Hom and Dong Architects Inc. designed the 3329 Building in Fairfield, Calif., to take advantage of its highly visible location. The office building is located on a quiet corner near an interstate, amidst the back elevations of adjacent retail centers and restaurants. It faces the street, displaying simple geometry and clean metal lines. The building’s tall height is visible when viewed by surface traffic on North Texas Street, and it can also be seen in glimpses from the adjacent interstate.

To give the 5,000-square-foot facility its distinct appearance, Pearce Heating and Air Conditioning installed metal roof and wall panels in three colors. It installed Metal Sales Manufacturing Corp.’s 24-gauge vertical seam metal roof panels in Dark Bronze Cool Roofing and three types of concealed fastener metal wall panels: TL-17A, TL-17C and TL-1222. Contrasting colors of metal wall panels, Champagne Metallic and Slate Grey, were installed horizontally in a repeating pattern.

The 3329 Building was named after its address at 3329 N. Texas St. The City of Fairfield designated North Texas Street as a major redevelopment area in 1995, and became an attractive commercial district. The $1.2 million project was completed in December 2015.
