CRL-Blumcraft's 'All-Glass' Entrance System and Panic Handles are featured in Architect Magazine's 2013 Annual Design Review Awards in Trahan Architects' Modern, High-Concept Design.

LOS ANGELES, CA - January 22, 2014 - Architectural glass and glazing products from C.R. Laurence's family of trusted brands are featured in contemporary and high profile building projects worldwide. C.R. Laurence Company takes pride in its ability to provide architects, designers, and contractors with versatile solutions that maintain the project team's vision and integrity while meeting performance standards, project deadlines, and budget requirements. CRL's extensive library of architectural glass products suit distinctive, award-winning design projects.

Trahan Architects' Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum project recently won a 2013 Architect Magazine Annual Design Review Award in the Bond Category for cultural building types. This local history and sports museum takes a contemporary approach that effectively combines bold and practical elements into an imaginative modern design.

The project features the CRL-Blumcraft® Series 1301 'All-Glass' Entrance System with CRL-Blumcraft® Panic Handles. The Series 1301 System contains the slimmest door rail profile in the industry, giving the Louisiana History Museum and Sports Hall of Fame a striking entryway that matches its overall contemporary façade.

"In the age of burgeoning modern and highly conceptual design projects, C.R. Laurence Company continues to rise to the occasion and provide the architectural and design community with quality architectural glass and metal systems that maintain a contemporary aesthetic," says Lloyd Talbert, President of C.R. Laurence. "Our solutions-based products are designed to provide value and translate the owners' and architects' vision into a reality."

The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum project, which was also nominated for a World Architecture Festival Award, serves as just one example of CRL's ability to provide supremely engineered products for a wide range of projects of varying sizes, design styles, timelines, function, and performance criteria.
