Instantly Update Historic Buildings by Adding this One Design Element

By NanaWall Systems, December 19, 2017

Historic renovations can be tricky: it’s about finding the right balance between integrating the new and establishing a sense of the present-day while taking the time to appreciate what came before. Opening glass walls easily bridge this aesthetic gap, as they are at once contemporary and timeless. Also, like the craftsmanship of yore, NanaWall’s exceptionally engineered products are made to endure. Read on to get a look at some of our favorite historic renovation projects.
