The Forest House is a Scandinavian-style resident built through the collaboration between Douglas Burnham and Envelope A+D. Located in California, the United States, the house has received a 2017 design award from the American Institute of Architects due to its extraordinary design featuring three NanaWall WD66 systems.
As mentioned above, the house comes with the NanaWall WD66 system which is known as wood-framed folding glass wall. Due to its top notch insulation and weather protection, the system works well with a home like Forest House. The WD66 acts as a non-operable and conventional wall which is perfect to upgrade the whole look of the Forest House.
Open to the Outside
The Forest house consists of a series of one-room cabins which make the overall space seems expansive, not to mention with the additional flexibility presented by the WD66.
When operated, the system glides off into a corner and expands the room, letting the inner space opens to the outside.
Here you can see the living room with hardwood flooring and a wood burning fireplace.
Smart Installation for Small Spaces
Some people say that NanaWall WD66 system is intended for spacious building. However, seeing that it suits perfectly for a narrow space like the Forest house, the claim is definitely off base. The smallest WD66 system comes with 3 panels which is suitable for limited spaces.
