Appartamento MB

Located in Martina Franca, this renovation project was designed to consolidate the structure of the building but also to make the flat more spacious and modern.  Designed by ABBW architect Angelo Bruno, the style adopted is very much characterised by comfortable and cosy furnishing elements. The look of the rooms is defined by the white walls and the geometry of the coverings, which favours neutral tones.    The first significant change was the division between the living area, where there is a kitchen, a bathroom, a laundry, a living room and a storage room, and the sleeping area, consisting of a single bedroom, a double bedroom and a bathroom. The utility room overlooking the living room has been concealed with the help... More

Kitchen Transition

NanaWall Systems has created an innovative way for homeowners to enjoy the benefits and beauty of an outdoor kitchen, without the pricey redundancy—the NanaWall Kitchen Transition transforms an indoor kitchen into an indoor and outdoor kitchen, by making the wall which separates it from the backyard vanish and reappear with ease.The NanaWall Kitchen Transition is a combination of the company’s folding or sliding glass windows, which replace traditional windows over a kitchen countertop, and floor-to-ceiling walls, which replace a wall or a typical sliding-glass door.

Residential Renovation in Madrid

After confinement, who can doubt how essential it is to have multifunctional interior spaces? Living together while being able to work separately, all from home, has become a necessity. Here is the real-life case of a five-person family where mobile partitioning transformed their home and created new spaces as needed, playing with privacy, natural light, and circulation, thus having an immediate impact on the life and well-being of the entire family. A project by José Manuel Fiori that became a reality owing to our sliding and folding systems Slid and Lite Fold. 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...

Park City Residence

A house presented Otto Walker Architects with dramatic views and a choice site. Using a mix of raw timbers and chunky, native stones, Otto developed a concept that responded to the client’s specific wishes.“The materials are intrinsic to the area, and it’s still a bit of an Alpine feel that just seems to make sense there,” says Otto. “The client wanted lots of views, and indoor/outdoor living was also a component. Everybody wants to do some cooking outdoors.”In this case, the use of an opening glass wall was “kind of a program requirement,” says the architect. “The owners definitely wanted a large opening in that location – it was a deck.” Otto / Walker specified the highly weather-resistant NanaWall WA67, a thermally broken, aluminum foldi...
