Marvin Casement Windows- Unity Temple

Marvin Casement Windows – Unity Temple

Unity Temple Windows

Location: Unity House – Oak Park, IL

Challenge: Windows that had been replaced only years earlier in the national landmark were already failing.
Solution: Working with Marvin Windows and Doors, CWDS developed a plan to replace the failing units with ones from Marvin that would meet the stringent historical requirements this prominent Frank Lloyd Wright building is subject to.
Because of the unique construction of the Temple, the replacement process was tedious. New structural members needed to be fabricated out of a combination of wood species prior to installation while the windows themselves are anything but “off the shelf”. Custom interior trim that replicates that found elsewhere in the Temple finishes off the units.
