Structural Glazing and Sliding Door Used to Create Glass Walls for a Luxury Villa 

Built with open plan spaces, this modern villa design has a strong connection with the outdoors. The ground floor’s open plan layout can be almost completely merged with the outdoor pool area thanks to the minimally framed glazing. 

Ultra-slim sliding glass doors and frameless structural glass panes were combined to create a glass wall that wraps around the lower floor. The floor to ceiling, slim sliding glass doors create a connection between the luxury modern villa and its outdoor space.  

The interior design utilises a light colour scheme, which when combined with the huge influx of natural light creates bright and spacious living areas that feel bigger than they are. Wooden building materials, including some stunning dark wood around the staircase, have been utilised to give the space some character and depth as well as introduce an element of biophilic design into the space and further strengthen that connection with the outdoors.  

The ability to conceal the head and base frames combined with the ultra-slim 21mm sightline means that the sliding elements blend in perfectly with the structural glazing for a minimal glass wall that can be opened. 

Large architectural glazing panels allow natural light and the sun into the internal space during the day. The natural light highlights the luxury, modern and minimalistic interior design elements and also improves the life quality of the homeowners by helping to reduce stress, boost productivity and have a positive impact on their sleep cycle. 

High-quality aluminium profiles are used for the doors, with 70% recycled aluminium used to create an environmentally friendly system, something which was a big focus for the homeowners. minimal windows® aluminium frame sliding glass doors use a full polyamide thermal break to achieve high thermal performance levels, allowing them to be used to create highly insulated internal spaces all year round.  

Frameless structural glass walls and sliding glass doors are the perfect pairing for a luxury villa such as this one, they allow natural light to be added to every corner of the house whilst providing clear, panoramic views of the outdoors.
