1000 North Water Street Building

Architects: Harwood K. Smith & Partners (Dallas) 1991

The steel frame of the 12-story building is clad in pinkish Lac du Bonnet Granite, with a polished surface on the lower three floors and honed on the upper floors. The granite was quarried in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba by the Cold Spring Granite Company. Windows are set flush with the granite skin, emphasizing the flatness of the building's facades. The windows have a pink tint which matches the color of the granite. The uniformity of surface and color combine to create a skin-like covering over the steel structural frame.
