New Marvin Products at Dwell on Design 2014

I spent last weekend at Dwell’s annual trade show at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  Marvin Windows and Doors featured some new products in their booth this year at Dwell on Design 2014.    Below are photos of a couple of these products, including a 90 degree corner lift and slide with a Performance Sill.  The new contemporary door panel which is available in both inswing and outswing configurations.  Marvin’s shades that were launched at IBS this year, were also shown on a casement window.

The second day, the kids really enjoyed the Marvin Booth and the rest of the cool items on display.

Contemporary Marvin Window and Door Projects in Marin County

Old Town Glass furnishes windows and doors for all types of projects. Over the past couple months, we have worked on a number of projects that featured Marvin Windows and Doors, used in Modern Design. Here are a couple photos highlighting contemporary windows and doors. The projects range from Hotel and Resorts, new construction, and small remodels with window replacement.

The next photo set features Marvin Cumulus Gray Clad Windows and Doors with Square Sticking on a project that was designed and built by the owner in Sausalito, CA.  It features sweeping views of Sausalito, Tiburon, and San Francisco Bay.  To get the Marvin Windows and Doors onsite, we had to work with the owner, general contractor, and crane company to delivery each item to the correct floor.

John Clarke Architects, designed the project shown below that was constructed by Tom Ganley Construction in Ross, CA.   It was a major remodel to update an existing structure.   The windows and doors have a contemporary design while blending into the natural elements of the building site. We worked with Marvin Windows and Doors in order to customize the sticking and interior trim so that all of the direct glazed (fixed units) have matching interior glazing stops to the Marvin Pushout Casements used throughout the project.

The complete renovation of the Historical Mansion at the Casa Madrona Hotel in Sausalito, featured the addition of a Modern Suite below the Mansion.  Marvin Windows and Doors were used throughout the structure, including historically accurate Clad Ultimate Insert Double Hungs with Ogee Lugs.   The lower floor featured a combination of Marvin Clad Ultimate Double Hungs and Direct Glazed Polygon Corner Units and Ultimate Casements.  The below photos shows the sweeping view of San Francisco Bay, Marin County, and the East Bay from the corner unit that is glazed with 1/2″ Clear Tempered Glass.  The windows next to it are standard Marvin Ultimate Casements with Cardinal 272 Lowe glass.

Interior Shades for Windows and Doors from Marvin

Marvin recently introduced interior and exterior shades for their window and door product lines.   Their shade product is truly innovative and we encourage you to schedule an appointment for us to demonstrate this amazing new product to you. The shades are offered in both light filtering and black out options in a number of colors to complement a variety of interior finishes. Currently the shades are available on casements, awning, fixed windows, hinged and sliding doors. Marvin will  likely be adding additional products in the future.

I was at the International Builder’s show last week and got to snap a couple pictures of the Marvin IBS booth that shows some of these new shade products.  Over the next few months, Old Town Glass will be adding samples of these shades to our showroom floor.  In the meantime we do have suitcase samples and shade books available to our customers.

Aluminum Clad Wood 90 Degree Corner Window Options

With recent changes in energy codes and the desire to make fenestration products more energy efficient, butt joint and mitre corner windows are becoming less common.   Most customers assume that having double pane glass in a corner window assembly means a large post and a lot of space between the glass.  Fortunately there are a number of options on the market in both aluminum and aluminum clad wood windows that offer clean, contemporary lines.

The following photos highlight three different corner window options offered by Marvin Windows and Doors.

Marvin Window and Door Delivery with a Crane

Today’s Marvin Window and Door Delivery was an interesting one.  We had to deliver windows to a jobsite on a one lane road to a home that is basically built into a cliff.  The garage is on street level but all the living space is above.  We worked with the General Contractor, Owner, Ad-Lite Crane from Novato, and our delivery crew in order to stragetically place each window and door as close to the rough opening it was to be installed in.

Old Town Glass Installing Marvin Lift and Slide Door

This week we spent two days installing a Marvin Lift and Slide Door on a project in Northern California.  This particular door is a 24 Foot by 10 Foot OXXO or  by parting stacking door system.  The door and frame are pine interior and exterior with Marvin’s standard brick mold casing.  The door features a recessed sill without drainage.  The home that this door is being installed in has Marvin Windows and Door throughout.

Phase 2 of the installation will occur next week, when final adjustments will be made and the recessed track will be filled with a low weight non shrink concrete.  The concrete will provide complete support under the Marvin Lift and Slide door unit.

A combination of Grace Vycor Pro and Fast Flash from Prosoco was used during the installation to flash the door frame.

Old Town Glass’s crew is a Marvin Authorized Lift and Slide Installer and installs these Marvin door systems in Northern California.  For additional information please contact us.

Dwell on Desgin 2013, Marvin Windows and Doors Booth

At Dwell on Design 2013, held last weekend at the Los Angeles Convention Center – Marvin Windows and Doors showcased a new booth designed specifically for Dwell. The booth highlighted Marvin’s Contemporary Solutions. We made it down to the show to check out the new booth and watch a presentation featuring Dwell and Marvin. The presentation discussed a project that we have worked on in Mill Valley with both Dwell Magazine and Marvin Windows and Doors.  It was an excellent presentation and discussed replacement of the Windows and a Door in the Dwell President’s Living Room. Her old aluminum windows were replaced with Marvin Products that provided a contemporary design solution and brought the natural surrounding into the inside. The transformation was captured in a series of two videos.

Video 1: is from before highlighting a consultation with Old Town Glass.

The consultation is what is offered by Marvin Window and Door dealers across the country and part of what customers should expected working with a Marvin Windows and Doors dealer.

If you are in the Northen San Francisco Bay Area, and would like to schedule a consultation – please give us a call. If you are in another area you can visit the Marvin dealer locator online at www.marvin.com to find a dealer near you.

Video 2: shows the post installation finished product and how the Dwell President enjoys and uses her space with the new windows and doors.

The videos from the project were also featured during the on stage discussion.

The most interesting and question part of the Marvin Dwell on Design booth were not the windows, but the bathroom vanity in the top of the booth.

Does Marvin supply bathroom vanities? ? ? No !
However, the vanity brought a lot of people into the Marvin Booth and is highlights how integral windows and doors are to your home.
