Check out some projects featuring minimal windows that were nominated for awards
The extension on this Victorian Villa was designed to be bold and impressive. Dark tones and thick walls were used to make a striking statement against the existing building.
Inside, the interior design of the property follows a greyscale colour palette, creating a high end, contemporary aesthetic. The framing on the slim sliding doors were finished with a gold polyester powder coating to bring a touch of colour and elegance to the extension.
As the ceiling in the kitchen-diner area slopes downwards, it was important to use a glazing system that can hold large panes of glass and has minimal sightlines to ensure enough natural light enters the living space.
Both the minimal windows® and minimal windows® 4+ can reach staggering sizes, and both systems have flush thresholds, minimal sightlines and headframes that are concealed within the building finishes for a sleek and minimal finish.
This project was by LP Architects and it was shortlisted in the £250,000-£500,000 category for the House of the Year award.
Petersen Brick House
This Victorian end terrace home underwent a complete
interior transformation and gained a new rear extension. The clients wanted their
new home to have a stronger connection to their garden and to nature.
The easiest way to forge a connection between nature and internal spaces is through glazing. Using large elevations of glass has many benefits, it allows in a significant amount of natural light and provides beautiful views of the garden.
In warmer months the doors can be opened to form an indoor-outdoor area where the flow between the interior spaces and nature is seamless.
This project by Neil Dusheiko Architects featured a two-pane minimal windows® sliding door system and a minimal pivot door. It was shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards 2018, as well as longlisted for the NLA Awards Don’t Move Improve 2018.
The Hampstead House
This new build home in Hampstead was designed around the brief of a modern family home that had space for relaxing as well as entertaining and maximised views of the outdoors.
Floor to ceiling glazing surrounds the home and makes up majority of the rear side. This includes multiple minimal windows® sliding door systems and fixed structural glazing.
The bold black framing and silicone joints on the glass creates a beautiful contrast with the surround crisp, white building for a sleek, modern finish.
Frameless glass balustrades were used on the external
balcony areas, as well as on the internal staircase. The glass balustrades used
along the stairs curve to follow the shape of the staircase and the abundance
of glazing elevates the minimalist design to a new level.
This property was designed by Belsize Architects and won
first prize in category 3 of the Keller Export Award 2018.
