Atmospheric Warmth and Glare Control:
Use of OKAWOOD in the Oklahoma Science Museum
Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Welcome to the first issue of OKALUX Glass News and Happy New Year!
If you are in Oklahoma City, OK, visit the Science Museum. It's a great place for families and the children's museum is larger than 90% of the children's museums across the country.
When you approach the building, check out the facade, which is the first OKAWOOD project that was completed using vertically-oriented OKAWOOD louvers. The insulated OKAWOOD glass units have been placed at the entrance to the museum and provide depth to the structure and a warm interior feel. "The OKAWOOD product was the perfect solution for the large north-facing glass. We wanted atmospheric warmth and control of the north sky glare. We got both in one material. The light is amazing," say Rand Elliott and Mike Mays, the project architects, from Elliott + Associates Architects, Oklahoma City.
