Keeping the interior spaces open and full of light was a challenge in the below grade space of the Millenium Park Bicycle Station. The design firm wanted to leave the staircase open so the light would flow through, but the city required that it be enclosed for safety reasons. To address both concerns, Muller and Muller chose as a glass fire wall system: Pilkington Pyrostop® fire and impact safety rated glass, with Fireframes® Heat Barrier Series, a fire-rated framing that provides a barrier to heat.
