Cambridge Architectural began with an architect's vision - an insight that perceived woven wire mesh as a unique and beautiful alternative to traditional designs. In 1958, Cambridge Wirecloth produced a woven metal mesh to clad elevator interiors in the world-renowned Seagram Building in New York City. That first installation has lasted over 60 years, retaining its pristine look and condition.
In the years that followed, a partnership formed between architects and Cambridge, which realized the possibilities for architectural mesh were endless. By working with architects all over the world and being open to new and adventurous designs, the Cambridge team began developing a new vision to integrate woven metal mesh into the built environment.
The Architectural division was launched in 2002 as a natural off-shoot of the century-old woven metal mesh and belting manufacturer Cambridge International. With a foundation in quality American craftsmanship, the architectural division was able to flourish by offering tensile systems never before seen in the architectural design community.
Building on the visions of the architects, Cambridge architectural mesh systems adorn some impressive structures erected during the past decade including resorts, hospitals, theaters, and museums. Cambridge systems are American-made and manufactured by skilled craftsmen on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
As the benefits of working with metal mesh became apparent, so did the ease and simplicity of working with a full-service manufacturer and provider. When you work with Cambridge Architectural, our knowledgeable team walks you through the design process, step-by-step, bringing the architect's concept into reality. From the grand design to the smallest detail, Cambridge ensures assistance every step of the way.
Specializing in both interior and exterior applications, Cambridge Architectural is truly open to your ideas. The possibilities for design and function are boundless, limited only by the stretch of the imagination.
