- Panoramah! Structural Glazing Minimal Window System – 38 Series with Anodized Aluminum Profiles
- Low-E Toughened/Tempered Glass with Argon Filled Cavity
- System Hardware
While large sliding glass panels are a key feature in "minimalist" architectural design, the ability to span very large openings makes PanoramAH! ideal for many varying styles. In this case, a very rustic barn-style home centers on a great room in the middle of the floor plan with completely open sides, nearly 30 feet wide each.
The Architect wanted a very unique unobstructed opening, with grand proportions that would bring the outdoor feel to indoor spaces. By selecting Panoramah the client was able to incorporate a series of weathertight glass panels 30 feet across in full barndoor (15 feet) height. When open, all five panels slide away to disappear into a wall pocket. This was a game changer, eliminating the need for transom windows using massive openings with the correct proportions for a barn-style design. The ultra-modern siding glass doors also permit the operation of large decorative wooden shutters designed to mimic barn doors central to the rustic theme.
This same door-behind-door motif repeats in several locations, providing beauty, performance, and flexibility.
