South Hills High School



South Hills High School


The Project

Steele & Freeman sought a distinctive architectural element for the South Hills High School project in Fort Worth. With their focus on delivering excellence and personalized service, they needed a unique shade solution that would not only provide functional benefits but also align with the innovative vision of the school.

Arch-Fab, known for crafting custom shade solutions, was enlisted as a partner in this endeavor. The challenge was to seamlessly integrate a striking architectural feature inspired by DNA strands into the school’s environment.

The Solution

Arch-Fab rose to the challenge by designing, fabricating, and installing a one-of-a-kind custom trellis for South Hills High School. The design, inspired by the structure of DNA, featured 4″ square tube posts with beams projecting out, connected by 2″ x 6″ tubes. The intricate “DNA” pattern was achieved with 1″ pipes ascending and descending between the beams.

The entire structure was finished with Kynar Regal White for a clean aesthetic, complemented by Polycarbonate panels on top, ensuring durability and functionality. Arch-Fab’s comprehensive approach, from design to installation, resulted in a visually striking and functionally sound architectural feature.
