Slim Framed Sliding Doors in a Luxury Australian New Build Home

This glass villa with an outdoor pool in Australia was designed to make the most of the stunning surrounding area, with large elevations of oversized glazing that utilise both fixed and moving glazing solutions.  

The highly glazed façade design uses bespoke architectural glazing to create floor to ceiling windows, with slim framed sliding glass doors to bridge the gap between indoor and outdoor areas. The slim framed sliding doors in Australia allow the homeowners to forge a strong connection with the outdoor environment, which includes a large patio area and an outdoor swimming pool.  

Various configurations have been used to create the glass villa with an outdoor pool, including opening corner sliding glass doors and glass to glass corners which use structural silicone between structural glass panes for an extremely minimal design. The combination of oversized glazing and warm wood features runs through the home, contrasting each other for a unique interior design. The same floor finish has been used inside and outside the slim framed sliding doors in Australia, for a continuous flow that allows indoor and outdoor areas to be fully merged when the doors are slid open.  

The open plan living area features slim framed sliding doors in Australia which stretch along one elevation of the large space, granting uninterrupted views of the pool area thanks to the ultra slim sightlines of just 21mm. The head and base frames of the slim framed sliding doors in Australia have been concealed within the building finishes for a floor to ceiling glazed effect, maximising the glass to frame ratio for the most modern design.  

Glass walls have been used to create a fully glazed corridor within the floorplan, with speckled pebbles used outside to create a clear differentiation between indoor and outdoor environments. The flat roof adds to the contemporary aesthetic further, allowing the oversized glazing to be the primary feature of the home design.  

Within the glass villa with an outdoor pool, the slim framed sliding doors have been used to create an internal glass courtyard. The courtyard allows natural light to flow freely into the home from every angle, as well as becoming a design feature within the contemporary new build. Outside the courtyard, views of the pebbled ground can be seen with living plants to create a biophilic architectural design.  

All bespoke glazing solutions are fully thermally broken, separating the indoor and outdoor environments to keep the internal living space cool and thus reduce cooling costs. The slim framed sliding doors at the glass villa with an outdoor pool area complete with a flush threshold detail, granting step free travel between the two environments and enhancing the functionality.
