Panera Bread Co., Philadelphia

Panera Bread Co. designed its restaurant in Philadelphia with metal wall panels to create a modern appearance with durable materials. The panels form horizontal shadow lines at the top of the building’s exterior walls. The project utilized 1,200 square feet of MBCI’s 24-gauge MasterLine 16 concealed fastener wall panels in Slate Gray. A heavier gauge panel was used to minimize oil canning and maximize long-term appearance. The project was completed in February 2017.
