Descending into a valley at Grace Farms in New Canaan Connecticut, The River consists of five volumes linked together by a single curving roof. SANAA designed the project with Handel Architects serving as the executive architect. The new building provides a sanctuary, library, court, commons, and pavilion, all under an aluminum roof by Zahner.Sciame managed the project, and Zahner worked with Dahill who provided the waterproofing for the roofing components.Zahner's Design Assist team was brought into the project for their expertise in engineering and manufacturing systems for custom building envelopes. The panel system provides a subtle dual curvature, and yet consists of standard-sized sheets of exterior anodized aluminum. Zahner developed the roof in close collaboration with the architects, who provided feedback and requirements for its aesthetic performance."Our goal with the River is to make the architecture become part of the landscape. We hope that those who are on the property will have a greater enjoyment of the beautiful environment and changing seasons through the spaces and experience created by the River." — Sharon Prince, Grace Farms Foundation President.

The Lineage Logistics workplace design features a Zahner-manufactured ImageWall perforated metal system for its interior walkway. Lineage Logistics provides warehousing and logistics around the world. For their headquarters' renovation, the firm enlisted Gensler to develop a fresh office redesign. Zahner was contracted to develop a custom perforated backlit screen wall. Using the Zahner ImageWall app, the design team developed their imagery of a perforated aluminum world map which wraps the corridor. An inspiring representation of their client's world-facing outlook, this interior feature designed by Gensler Architects provides a transition area between the work and social spaces at Lineage Logistics in Irvine, California. The standardized use of Cross-Seam Perforation in all ImageWall systems eliminates the "picture frame" effect that occurs with typical perforated metal panels. The result is an alignment of the image's parametric relationship along panel folds, creating an easy to read continuous graphic.An LED light system outlines the interior surface of the ImageWall system providing ambient backlighting. White-painted hardware, along with material and lighting selections, achieved a clean white look for the interior.
