Keeping in mind the second of the two goals, Okamoto continues, “As an architect, I also had a design objective to make use of the cooling ocean breezes from the nearby shore.” A failure to make use of all available ventilation and airflow strategies can create a stale, stuffy environment, especially during hot Los Angeles-area summers. A large increase in costs associated with cooling loads can come with that, also.

The project stakeholders chose to install NanaWall's SL45 Aluminum Framed Folding System at the end of the church's worship space, nearest an outdoor gathering area. “The opening creates a unique indoor-outdoor connection that has helped with the staging of many kinds of church functions and events,” says Okamoto.
