The New NXL Architects playground

I had a little visit with the new NXL Architect office a few days ago at 31 Scarsdale Rd. 

We made the sliding doors that covers almost the entire strip of the office's right side where the board rooms are. We even made the sliding hardware specifically for these doors as they were quite heavy being 2-1/4" thick of Baltic birch plywood with fluted glass panels.

I couldn't be more happy to see such a beautiful office that seems more like a playground as it was done so thoughtfully and creatively. We are so proud to have worked on this project. 

 The note book on the shelf above belongs to the principal architect's father. Four doors were installed for the large board room. Two are stationary on each side, while two slides in a bi-parting manner to open and close.

 The other set of doors is for a smaller think room. I felt like I was going back through time seeing this room amidst the modern, clean lines of the entire office.

 I took this picture of Rock while he worked on getting the doors installed months ago while NXL was under construction. Light through fluted glass is so beautiful.

 We made the hardware specially for these doors since they have to slide on the I-beam which had a thicker flat track. The wheels are metal instead of nylon to bear the weight of the doors.

 During under construction. Amazing what the space looks like now.
