CRAN Lunch & Learn: Crafting the Intersection Between Indoors and Outdoors

Hen Quarter

Silver Spring, MD 20910

An architect puts pen to paper, dreaming up an initial sketch that melds a building seamlessly with its environment, complementing topography, and surroundings. The ability to bring the outdoors in, and for a building to reflect its surroundings, is a hallmark of modern design. Outdoor rooms that flow naturally into interior spaces not only enhance a structure’s footprint, they also provide ventilation, fresh air, and daylight, and connect occupants to nature.

Please join AIA Potomac Valley and Capital Area CRAN at Hen Quarter in Silver Spring to view a recent installation and learn more about using multi-panel door systems to create an intersection between indoors and outdoors.
