Expansive renovation with slim sliding doors in Austria
This luxury home in Austria is located in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by undisturbed nature without another building in sight. The large garden space, complete with a highly glazed rear façade design, is bathed in natural light throughout the day and the use of floor to ceiling glass doors allows the light to flood the interior design with light.
The brief for this renovation project was to forge a better connection between the house and the garden and increase the natural light within the internal living spaces. The previously dark ground floor was transformed with the use of slim sliding doors in Austria, which have been installed in biparting configurations at multiple points across the ground floor. Two sets of biparting sliding doors offer a flexible approach to indoor-outdoor living, with central panes sliding outwards to create multiple access points when travelling between indoor and outdoor areas.
One set of ultra slim sliding glass doors in Austria have been designed in an opening corner arrangement, with a glass to glass corner detail highlighting the slim nature of the aluminium profiles. The 21mm sightlines are extremely subtle when specified in a light RAL colour and the glass corner adds a touch of luxury to the façade design. The flexible nature of the minimal windows system means complex configurations such as these can be easily achieved without altering the performance or life expectancy of the system.
minimal windows® sliding glass doors were perfectly suited to this project, allowing the architects to combine modern performance values with sleek, minimal designs. The result inside the home is a spa-like tranquillity, even featuring an indoor swimming pool and spa area. The slim framed sliding doors in the indoor pool area were specified with a marine grade finish, to ensure the systems were durable and long lasting when faced with a harsher environment.
On the first floor slim sliding doors in Austria have been installed in a two pane configuration, leading to the terraced area that wraps around the back of the home and leads to a staircase providing direct garden access from the first floor. Frameless glass balustrades surround the first floor terrace, continuing as a handrail on the staircase to enhance safety whilst maintaining completely uninterrupted views.
The influx of natural light is able to pass through the glass balustrades, bouncing through the sliding glass doors and through the top floor. The use of frameless architectural glazing creates a continuous theme with the slim sliding doors in Austria, which have been specified with light silver frames for a subtle finish.
