Add a dramatic statement to a home or commercial building design using our architectural wall systems with all-wood interiors and load bearing structural integrity. These advanced systems feature laminated wood beams that can actually eliminate the need for steel beams in some cases. You can even incorporate our doors, operable windows and structural corner units.
A distinctive upgrade over ordinary storefront glazing or aluminum curtain walls, our wall systems are tested to ASTM standards for air and water infiltration and structural wind load performance, and they meet today's energy standards for heat loss and solar heat gain. Their performance and durability have been shown in hundreds of commercial and residential installations across the U.S., Canada and Japan.
Each architectural wall system is custom designed and built specifically for your project with full engineering specifications and shop drawings coordinated by our architectural consultants. Take a closer look at two remarkable styles of these innovative structural building systems.
Black Butte Ranch Pool House / 3Black Butte Ranch, OR
Black Butte Ranch – a resort community located near Sisters, Oregon – sits at the gateway to Oregon’s high desert. First planned in the early 1970s, the Ranch is a vacation destination for many, and a year-round home for some. The original architecture is iconic “solar architecture” of its period, and the spectacular natural setting is unrivaled.
Lakeside at Black Butte Ranch replaced the well-worn existing pool facility and revived the “heart of the Ranch.” The magnificent site sits between the original modernist Ranch buildings from the early 1970s: the award winning Country House Condominiums and the Lodge. The new design was inspired by the barn-like simplicity of the Country House Condominiums and the abstracted landform roof lines of the Lodge, while evolving the Ranch’s building tradition into a progressive vision for the future and reinforcing its reputation as a venerable Central Oregon resort.
The 2015 project was designed by Hacker Architects of Portland, Oregon.Tags: Commercial, Commercial Swing Door, Contemporary, Door, New Construction, Vertical Glazed Architectural Wall System, Wall System
