Wells Fargo Center | North Tower

Clear Span Façade | Los Angeles, CA


This clear span structural glass façade is located at 333 South Grand Avenue in Los Angeles, CA. Also known as the Wells Fargo Center’s North Tower, this 54-story Class A building was designed by Skidmore, Owings + Merrill, and is now the site of their Los Angeles office complex. A LEED Gold-certified building, the lobby entrance façade was designed utilizing Sentech’s VetraSpan System– full height façade panels with no fins, no fittings, and no obstructions. The façade spans approximately 12-feet in height by 20-feet in width, totaling just over 1,700 square feet of structural glass. The glass panels were comprised of 1-1/16″ low-iron fully tempered laminated glass with an XIR 72-41 interlayer. This allowed for a structural glass façade and entrance solution that maximized light transmission and transparency, while simultaneously protecting the interior environment from intense solar energy and unnecessary heat gain.
