    Metal Ceilings  Linear 

In fact, the suspended linear Deep Box by Hunter Douglas Contract is familiar to anyone who has been in Toronto‘s subway stations: Its striated appearance comes from roll-formed metal profiles, typically deployed with a single-panel width, reveal dimension, and color. But the project design architect, Mitchell Hall, envisaged a less orthodox application of the decades-old, low-cost panel system. Hall created a repeating pattern mixing 2-inch, 4-inch, and 6-inch panels, all hung as typical from a common carrier suspension system. In the reveals, three distinct types of light fixtures are sprinkled, seemingly by chance: a 6-inch-wide flush lens, and two narrower, protruding rectangles of different lengths, all in white acrylic. At the perimeter, the linear aluminum appears to extend right through the curtain wall, continuing as soffit outside.
