Functional Design

One of The Godfrey’s trademark architectural design elements includes exposed trusses; not only do the trusses serve as a unique visual but they also play a crucial role in supporting the weight of the building. Below are photos of the exposed truss on the west side of The Godfrey. The trusses are nearing completion:

Fun fact: truss is derived from the Old French word “trousse”, which translates to a “collection of things bound together”.
