The architecture team at SHW Group employed NanaWall systems for the new elementary schools built in the Burelson, Texas ,school district. Simply by unfolding the durable, acoustically performing SL45 glass walls, two classrooms share a multipurpose room.
“The multiuse space needed great visibility and flexibility, with good acoustic separation,” says Konrad Judd, AIA, lead designer at the SHW Group in Dallas. “The NanaWall maximized the view and flexibility of the space when open or closed.”
In the past, multipurpose rooms were often designed as separate classrooms – and sometimes located in a different part of school or with a “garage door” type of overhead partition. The SHW Group designed the Burleson flex rooms to mesh with teaching methods that promote active participation, self-direction, and interest group clusters.
