A New Architectural Trend Emerges!
By , May 8, 2013
Curved architectural trends are possible with NanaWall operable glass wall systems! Renderings of the new apple headquarters and the Golden State Warriors Stadium embark on the concept of curved walls and glass buildings—a trend that is starting to engrave itself into architectural designs. And with NanaWall systems, anything is possible! Recently featured in The Wall Street Journal’s home section titled “A Glimpse of Homeowners Future,” glass doors that effortlessly slide around curves seem to be the future of architectural design.
The Sidney Island Residence in British Columbia [left image] was designed by architect Jamie A. Martin and a NanaWall Aluminum Framed Thermally Broken Single Track Sliding System HSW60 with segmented curve was used. The clean-lined glass panels glide effortlessly in the same plane on a single track with narrow stile; overall, giving a beautiful wide-open curve that faces the waterfront. At the Vandeventer Black, a law firm in Norfolf, VA [right image] the NanaWall Wood Framed Folding System WD65 is used to create a gracious curve at 60’ wide. It achieves a dramatic visual and provides flexible usage. As trends develop and form more unique openings and styles, NanaWall Systems will continue to provide the latest architectural design options for operable glass walls.
