West Star Aviation
Located at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, this new facility will consist of a 39,000 sf airplane hangar as well as a 25,000 sf office building. With facilities already in Colorado, Texas, Illinois and Iowa, this growing company decided to bring its expertise in aircraft maintenance, service and customization to the southeast region. The architecture makes use of the efficiency of a prefabricated metal building structure for both the hangar and office building portion of the project. The use of masonry and metal panel veneer for the office building both blends with the existing context, while subtle shifts in color and texture within that palate create an interesting and dynamic facade, giving a unique identity to the company.
