WEBINAR: New Principles in Residential Design Using Opening Glass Walls
Thu August 10 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 LU | HSW
Presented by NanaWall
Course Description: People have been spending more time at home and doing activities that were commonly done elsewhere such as working, school learning, etc. Post-pandemic, it appears that people will continue to opt to work or learn at home, at least on a part-time (hybrid) basis if not full-time. Residential buildings need to respond to new reality of flexibility to provide openness when appropriate but separation when needed – both for functioning and for health. The issues are true for both new building design and construction as well as for the renovation of existing buildings. Large operable glass walls provide both linear and spatial options to open or isolate spaces.
- Explain the welfare aspects of design and product selection that enable equitable access.
- Assess the safety aspects of incorporating product selections that protect buildings and people from harm and damage.
- Identify and recognize the significance of ongoing health concerns related to residential design and product selection.
- Determine ways to incorporate the design principles into single family building projects.
