Welcome to Cambridge
Architectural.

Our vision for Cambridge mesh is not to be


‘on’ or ‘in’ a building – but rather ‘of’ the built
environment. Cambridge mesh is art and
architecture, form and function, and one of
today’s most distinctive building materials.

WOVEN METAL FABRIC


Each distinct pattern of Cambridge woven
metal fabric is itself a work of art, designed
with a specific geometry, open area, dimension,
and flexibility. Woven by skilled artisans
from a multitude of combinations of highly
durable, yet readily recyclable metals,

including stainless, bronze, aluminum,
and brass, metal fabric is an intrinsically
sustainable building material.

ARCHITECTURAL FUNCTIONS
