IN PROGRESS – AA Robins on Point Grey

AA Robins, Point Grey Road

AA Robins designed house on Point Grey Road in Vancouver

Few projects that we’ve had the opportunity to participate in have created such controversy as this project by AA Robins. In spite of varying opinions on the design of the project, we at AMG appreciated the unique demands the design put on the glazing package. With the City of Vancouver’s strict performance requirements, we were asked to come up with a  glazing solution to a house that has a fully glazed bottom-floor enclosure, and yet had to comply with the required overall U-value of 1.4.

We knew that our partners at Reynaers could provide what we were looking for assuming we’d also specify triple-glazed IGUs. To maintain the design integrity, we decided to eliminate all vertical mullions on the enclosure, and instead used equal width IGUs with SSG joints (structurally siliconed glazing joints). The result was a near seamless glass box that provides even reflection on the wall surface without vertical interruptions.

Project Data:

  • Reynaers CS77 and CS86 window frames
  • Reynaers CP155 Minergie lift-and-slide doors
  • 6mm/6mm/6mm triple glazed IGUs, 90% argon
  • Overall U-value: 1.2
