Church tells stories with windows

When inside a church, it is not unusual to see stained glass windows. In addition to Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church's stained glass windows, which were installed in 1928, are five doors, inset with stained glass, installed and dedicated in 2004.

Quebec Home Wins 2016 Marvin Architects Challenge Showdown

Marvin Windows News - Tue, 07/12/2016 - 14:32

WARROAD, Minn. – July 12, 2016 – Determined by popular vote, Marvin® Windows and Doors announces the winner of its Architects Challenge Showdown competition: a residence by architect Malcolm Wildeboer of Vandenberg & Wildeboer Architects in Ottawa, Ontario. The project, Wedge House, was chosen by thousands of public votes over four weeks of voting.

Wildeboer’s project was also awarded top prize in the juried round of the 2016 competition, receiving the Best In Show title in May at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Convention in Philadelphia.

In his challenge submission, Wildeboer shared that the Wedge House is beautifully situated, with a quarter-mile approach that winds through a towering stand of century pines to a scenic shoreline. The 4,000-square-foot vacation home embraces a comfortable balance between shelter and exposure on the edge of the Ottawa River.

“The entire east façade – a glazed screen of soaring Marvin windows – evokes a bold yet delicate transparency, like a giant tent screen opening toward the rising sun,” said Wildeboer.

As the Showdown winner, Wildeboer will receive a trip to the 2016 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, held from October 5 to 6 in Los Angeles.
