When Baltimore’s Mercy Medical Center needed a new parking garage for its growing campus, the architectural firm designing the structure cast its eyes on a simple leaf and a versatile Perforated Metal. The leaf is symbolic of Mercy’s Catholic-based mission. McNICHOLS® Perforated Metal and Designer Mesh are associated with other qualities like weather-resistance, strength in a lightweight material, ventilation and visibility, and the ability to accommodate a large-scale painted graphic. Together they produced a magnificent 80' x 149' metal mural under the direction of international architects and urban planners. Not only does the mural mask the unsightly parking ramps, it doubles as safety and ventilation screen and showcases a spiritually-inspired image that bespeaks the principals of the Sisters of Mercy.
