All the glass is in at UL House and they are moving fast on hanging drywall. The window package is comprised of (2) systems: Aluminum storefront and custom extruded aluminum sections mitered at 45, welded and glazed. The storefront system is used at ground level full height glazing, entry and punched operable locations. We have been waiting a long time to find a project to use a custom designed window and UL House is our first opportunity. The custom window was economical to manufacture and easy to install. It is minimal in intent, no frame is visible from the interior and from the exterior the glass is proud of the stucco finish 3/4" giving the impression of planes of glass drifting on the building surface. The proud windows will cast shadows adding interest while breaking down the mass of the 60 foot long N/S elevations. The smoothest detail was the integration of an operable storefront into the custom system at the east and west bedroom horizontal windows. The operable sf window is set flush in-between (2) 1" insulated glass panels minimizing the perception of the custom frame and giving the impression of a floating window.
