Kumho Tire Distribution Facility

For tire manufacturer Kumho Tire, the construction of a new office and warehouse coincided with the adoption of a new company logo.

To emulate the wing motif of the new logo, the owner wanted the entry to the distribution facility to incorporate similar sweeping lines. To achieve this, Panattoni Construction cast and set the panels for the entry on an angle, using steel embeds welded to both the footing and the panels to hold them in place. The corner entry is crowned by two 103,000-pound panels that meet in a V, and the open spaces are filled with reflective blue glass.

The cool tone of the colors chosen for the panels offsets the building’s red wing-like light fixture.

An aluminum awning completes the unorthodox entry design, which has already earned landmark status in the city of McDonough, Ga., thanks to its architecturally arresting features.
