Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Drapery

Soaring 30-foot floor-to-ceiling windows on two cascade_coil_drapery sides of Toronto's latest hot spot, Aria Restaurant, offer views onto the bustling Air Canada Centre and Maple Leaf Square. Opened in March 2011, the restaurant provides a cool and contemporary respite from the hubbub of the city's financial district.

Delivering an aura of lightness and drama is the stainless steel wire mesh window treatments from Cascade Coil Drapery Inc., Portland, Ore., located against the restaurant's south wall. Cascade Coil supplied 1,116 square feet of the wire mesh that during the day offers a straightforward view outside. At night, shimmering glimpses of downtown filter in, enhancing the restaurant's sophisticated, yet welcoming, ambiance.

Aria's architect and designer, Urszula Tokarska of Stephen R. Pile Architect Inc., Toronto, says that in addition to diffusing light and facilitating views of the city, Cascade Coil's stainless steel drapery allows for air circulation across a series of radiant heat convectors. These are situated along the glazing perimeters of the space, helping to maximize Aria's energy efficiency.
