"Nanawall turned out to be the most appropriate system for Loblolly House in large part because of the system's compatibility of jamb and sill details with the aluminum structural frame."

While some systems could offer the views or the needed thermal performance, NanaWall was able to provide both of these desired outcomes as well as offering a variety of folding configurations, which allowed the designer to specify a custom glass door system tailor-fit to suit the client and the structure. The completed Loblolly incorporated two 4-panel inswing installations of NanaWall's SL70 Thermally Broken Aluminum Framed Folding System.

When open, the NanaWall SL70 panels "effectively transform the interior of the house into a porch," remarks Marilia Rodrigues, an associate and project architect at Kieran Timberlake. Occupants can enjoy a practically unobstructed view through the west-facing wall overlooking the bay, from the comfort of the living room sofa.

“Using the NanaWall operable glass walls presented an opening to bring in the pool deck and an exterior view without any obstructions. I am very satisfied with the outcome.”

“Our ambition as architects for this home was not simply to frame the view but to become one with the landscape. The NanaWall system achieved this in one elegant and dramatic gesture.” 

"During the mild winter months in South Florida, we can open our NanaWall system and bring the indoors and outdoors together. During our humid summers, we can shut out the weather but are still able to view our beautiful outdoor environment.” 

"NanaWall allowed us to create uninterrupted views to the Chesapeake Bay and open the west wall of the Loblolly House, effectively transforming the interior of the house into a porch."
