LC Privacy Glass: Conference Room

LC Privacy Glass was used to create this state-of-the-art conference room for a prominent Construction Management company in Woodbury, NY. The door and surrounding glass walls, when transparent, allow a full view of the beautiful reception area and mural, and then can become fully private when needed with the flip of a switch. Our patented PowerTrack allows the conference room door to slide open with no visible wires. The front wall can be used as a white board, or instantly transforms into a rear projection screen for impressive, eye-catching presentations. This project was installed by C&L Aluminum using the CRL 702 Series framing system. More

Project • By ASB GlassFloorOffices

Dell Cube

Dell asked us to design a cube without metal posts. The ceiling and floor are illuminated across the entire surface. In addition, the glass walls function as a projection screen visible from inside and outside the cube. On the inside of the glass walls, there is an installed tracking-device for interactive pens. Therefore, the Dell Cube is an illuminated whiteboard that is used by the employees during e.g. brain-storming sessions. More

PRFLPS offices

The transformation of this office building has to deal with the long, narrow shape of the plan that leads to an almost forced solution. Therefore, to avoid the hallway to be dominant, the project is based on curves, transparent walls, calibrated interruptions, transforming a simple passage in a space of discovery. The dominant white, enhanced by indirect light sources, expands the spaces, compensating for the absence of openings on the north side of the building. More

Project • By Steven Holl ArchitectsEmbassies

Swiss Embassy in Washington DC

This scheme placed first in the competition of ten Swiss-American team’s designs for the replacement of the Washington D.C. residence of the Swiss Ambassador. It is not only to be a private house but also a cultural gathering place on which standards and self-image of a country are measured. Sited on a hill with a direct view through the trees to the Washington monument in the distance, a diagonal line of overlapping spaces drawn through a cruciform courtyard plan was the conceptual starting point. Official arrival spaces and ceremony spaces are connected along this diagonal line on the first level, while private living quarter functions are on the floor above. Materials are charcoal integral color concrete trimmed in local slate and sand-b... More

FoldFlat

NanaWall Systems introduces the industry-first FoldFlat®, which allows glass wall panels to fold and then pivot all the way back to stack out of the way, parallel to the opening. Useful for patios, decks and balconies where space is a premium, the FoldFlat eliminates the issue of the panels sticking out into the outdoor space. “Standard folding glass walls protrude onto the deck or patio because they can only stop halfway at 90 degrees,” said NanaWall Systems CEO Ebrahim Nana. "With NanaWall FoldFlat, we have invented a solution for builders and homeowners to gain back that living space by folding the panels a full 180 degrees, entirely against the wall.” Available in both aluminum and wood-framed options, the NanaWall FoldFla...
