"We specified NanaWall because of the high quality, durability and minimalist appearance of the system."

SOM's design team specified NanaWall’s HSW60Thermally Broken Aluminum Framed Single Track Sliding System, with 19 panels divided among two openings. The solution was a segmented application with no floor track and a unique docking bay for the panels.

NanaWall stood out from the competition for this application for its ability to combine transparency with acoustic attenuation, and significant customizability, especially the curved design, according to the SOM design team.


"When the NanaWall system is open, the space works as a multi-purpose room. When closed, it creates space for two diverse uses: an intimate and private student lounge on one side and a more active space on the other.”

"The NanaWall system takes advantage of a fine climate much of the year and accommodates groups of 100 or more children for popular story hours. The south orientation is dealt with by the use of low-e glass."

“The multi-use space that we designed to adjoin two classrooms needed great visibility and flexibility, with good acoustic separation. The NanaWall not only does this, it’s easy to operate and beautiful.”

"All other systems we considered were complicated, inflexible, and did not support our design goal of an integrated window wall that completely opened to the outdoors. The NanaWall system was easy to install and our students and teachers love to use it.”
