"Residents at 60 Orchard, get the best of both worlds: a covered terrace, and no loss of indoor living space. For a condo, that represents significant added value."
Increased Sense of Space
"We wanted to create a new relationship between interior and exterior in a conventional seven-story building," recalls Orlando García of G Ateliers Architecture. Undaunted by the challenges, García's team conceived of maximizing the glass portion of each floor's facade, and having the glass open up onto a balconet, or Juliet balcony.
The design team opted for 18-foot spans of NanaWall's SL70 Thermally Broken Aluminum Framed Folding System as the best possible solution. García remarks, "By opening the entire facade, we were able to bring the qualities of a covered terrace to all the apartments.” "That would have been impossible with other products," the designer adds.
García continues: "In our opinion, NanaWall was the only manufacturer that met all of our requirements. We’ve had zero complaints about the excellent product quality, not to mention the great technical support."
Yogev agrees. "Residents at 60 Orchard can open up the NanaWall panels to transform their living room into a huge balcony,” he says. “They get the best of both worlds: a covered terrace, and no loss of indoor living space. For a condo, that represents significant added value."
