Description:

This uber trendy 10,000 square foot house on 2.5 acres overlooking Mecox Bay fully embraced the window wall concept particularly along the rear elevation. Floor to ceiling vistas dominate all of the water facing spaces. The architect wanted to create a very dramatic double height great room with a wall of custom glass. To achieve this, TW Window Systems designed and fabricated a series of custom wood panels that would mirror the lift and slide glass doors below. Custom wood panels and glazing alike were then engineered together to function as one large wall of glass. We crafted a uniform wall creating a true focal point of the home. In the pool area the window casings were custom notched to allow the builder to install trim between the units to fully wrap the structure with wood proved by TW Window Systems. We implemented the design to feel as though the building is continuously wrapped 360 degrees around with windows.

Placing this much glass directly facing the water required a strict focus on performance given windows as large as 30 feet high and 8 feet wide.

Double and triple glazed windows were engineered to handle very large openings throughout the home and the very high wind speeds anticipated along the coast. Additionally, the custom mahogany windows included coordinated finishes, custom integral shades and matching aluminum screens.
