Custom curved glass doors for Enclosing the River, Grace Farms, New Canaan, USA
Design by Sanaa
Sanaa, a Japanese architecture studio, designed “River Building”, a multipurpose facility. Conceived as an idealized river, the intervention puts the viewer in direct contact with nature.The structure snakes along the hill’s slope with a series of loops and curves.
To install the 40 custom curved glazed doors and glass entrance lobbies was the brief for Extravega. Each door with a different radius tested the team’s full experience, knowledge and passion.
NOT ONE ALIKE
Each one of the 40 entrances is one of a kind. Each window, vestibule and door unit is unique with its own curvature and radius. Grace Farms counts 40 curved glazed doors with glass vestibules. Each door has a different radius and glass vestibules. All the doors close automatically. The hardware is custom. The accessories custom too, all to support an effortless transition between indoor and outdoor states.
