Using the Outdoors as part of the Venue
When gazing onto the stage from seats inside of the center, a gigantic 32-foot-wide natural backdrop lies behind the performer. Those involved in the development of the project used the word transcendent during its creation, and the scene gets as close as it can. Everyone from the audience to the crowd can feel the connection with nature when in the Fritzsche Center.
The 12-panel SL70 aluminum folding glass wall system created the opening. When the wall smoothly opens, and the panels store out of view, the opening doesn’t just make for a beautiful backdrop; it’s also practical. And at times the Spring Valley Academy wants to seat more for a performance than the interior allows, it can set up seating outside of the NanaWall to create a 360-degree stage. Concerts can be held inside, outside, or both.
The NanaWall SL70 and the way it brings the outdoors into the venue creates the experience and visuals that truly make this venue excel.
