The Corner, Missoula, Mont.

The Corner is an 8-unit, mixed use on building on a triangular lot near downtown Missoula, Montana.

Its exterior is clad in Corten steel, which manages to look new and original, yet fits in with the historic brick buildings in the neighborhood.

The judges praised the varied elevations, which are unique yet what’s going on inside. The were also impressed with the exterior texture and layering that was achieved with the use of a single material.

The parking garage, at the core of the building, was the staging area when the project first began.

The horizontal bands are integral to the Corten steel siding: each piece is bent into a 'v' at the bottom to conceal anchors and allow for expansion and contraction of the metal.
