“With the unique capabilities of the NanaWall opening glass doors, including zero-clearance thresholds, it’s the solution for seamless integration of craftsmanship and lifestyle."

Embracing an Indoor/Outdoor Connection Year-round

Both of these ideas – lifestyle arts and green building – are on display in VAg’s recent house in Bachelor Gulch, a stone-and-wood composition which features mixed-width plank flooring and a memorable slab fireplace surround.

According to Steve Hooker of Schafer Construction, “Many clients call for open patios and decks, since we have such awesome weather here. People want to open it up to the outdoors.” In this case, he says, the architect selected the NanaWall WD66 and HSW65 to open up the living area to a balcony with a fabulous gulch view.

“The design is just trying to use the outdoors indoors, and NanaWall is well known for large openings,” says Hooker, adding that the architect specified the brand over such options as sliding and bi-fold doors.

One of the firm’s designers, Christy D'Agostina, adds that certain features of the operable glass wall made it the ideal choice.

“For this new project we wanted to expand the restaurant area so it would, in a sense, spill out into the park area.  This makes it ideal for three-season dining. We looked at other wall systems, but felt ultimately that the NanaWall System was the best system for our application.”

"Achieving a seamless indoor/outdoor relationship was critical to this lake front project. NanaWall’s recessed screens, track details and the environmental precision of the system assured our client’s comfort in winter as much as their ability to live both in and out during the warmer months.”

"We chose NanaWall for their strong reputation, large number of available options, ease of operation, and for the beauty of the product. It's wonderful to open them all up, bring the outside in and let the fresh air flow through our home."

“Winter on Lake Erie is brutal. Our goal was a 3-season room—we achieved an air tight 4-season room. Last year, hail and 60 mph winds left homes along this lake front with severe window damage. The NanaWalls came through without a scratch.” 

"Our primary desire was for a seamless transition to the garden and beach.The NanaWall system’s excellent quality and weather rating proved to be the perfect solution for our harsh seaside environment."
