“The durable exterior finish was needed to stand up to our weather and the everyday use of the door," according to the architects. “The metal-clad exterior and high- quality hardware of the NanaWall met these requirements.”
The NanaWall Wood Framed Folding System WD65 with a center pivot unfolds to an enormous terrace with an A-framed roof and sublime views of Cougar and Squak Mountains. The wood trim on the inside of the glass doors harmonizes with the fir finishes found throughout the exterior and interior spaces.

According to Rice Fergus Miller Architecture & Planning, led by senior principal and architect Mike Miller, NCARB, the firm was looking for an opening that would allow for an uninterrupted link between the shared spaces of the lobby and the terrace. It also had to integrate flawlessly with the project’s unique “Northwest lodge aesthetic.”
