Otto / Walker specified the a thermally broken NanaWall WA67 because it was the right door for the application – a NanaWall system is the perfect way to harvest expansive views, generous solar exposure, mature vegetation and topography which can help to enhance a design.
In this case, the use of an opening glass wall was “kind of a program requirement,” says the architect. “The owners definitely wanted a large opening in that location – it was a deck.” Otto / Walker specified the highly weather-resistant NanaWall WA67, a thermally broken, aluminum folding panel system – in part because it was the right door for the application, but in part because the client knew the NanaWall name.
“The client had built before in Salt Lake, but not in Park City, so there was a bit of a learning curve for them, but it wasn’t like they had no experience building a home,” says Otto. “They had interest in the NanaWall – it was one of the things they had seen and liked, and the general contractor also had a connection with NanaWall.”
With these bona fides and a strong architectural concept, the choice was a natural one.
