A patent-pending window designed and manufactured by Rochester Colonial Mfg. Corp has been selected as a
finalist in the worldwide Architizer A+ Awards in the Building Products/Window category.
Architizer is a global online networking site for architects and designers that allows design professionals
to present their projects to a worldwide audience. It is the world’s largest website for architecture and has over
1,400,000 followers on Facebook. The Architizer A+ Awards finalists in various categories were selected from submissions from over 100 countries.
The FoldUp™ Window, part of the company’s HeartWood Fine Windows and Doors line, replicates a traditional double hung window
but uniquely folds upward and opens fully. It is a new category of window that has attracted growing interest from architects and builders
both nationally and internationally. Projects include installations in Santa Barbara at the prestigious Bacara Resort & Spa,
The Bonnie restaurant in Astoria, Queens, the main dining room of the historic Sherwood Inn in Skaneateles, NY, and various residences throughout the US.
The A+ Awards features both a Jury Award and a Popular Choice Award that is open to voting by the public at awards.architizer.com/vote/. Voting ends April 3rd
