Last year, Beinfield Architecture PC took home the honor of Best in Show for their stunning project, the Trolley House in Norwalk, Connecticut. The architects cleverly utilized LaCantina’s operable glass doors to perfectly frame hushed views of the Farm Creek estuary and the greater Long Island Sound. The entire east wall of the Trolley House is comprised of LaCantina Doors, drenching the interior in natural light each morning and offering incredible views of the tidal landscape.
