Double height sliding glass doors in a modern barn renovation in Midlands
The stunning historical barn building has been renovated and expanded with a contemporary extension in Northamptonshire. 21mm sightlines slim sliding glass doors installed in different locations of the house to create smooth access through outside from inside of the house.
The minimal windows® architectural glazing system was installed as double height sliding glass doors from floor to ceiling. These oversized glazing units increase the natural light level in both ground and first floor hallway and fill the existing double height doorway. By maintaining the height of the opening, the tall slim sliding glass doors also provide amazing views of the surrounded landscape from dining area.
There were various other slim glass doors built into the kitchen, TV room and a garage areas. The all sliding glass doors created incredibly easy travels between the internal and external spaces. Both head and base framings were concealed into the main and extension buildings. Therefore, the concealed base framing profiles were able to keep the surface flush to move comfortably.
The minimal windows doors to the garage were designed to slide behind the brick columns for a frameless design. The 21mm sightlines slim sliding glass doors reach up to 8m long across the courtyard facing elevation of the luxury garage, to show incredibly beautiful classic cars. The flush threshold detailing of the minimal windows allows cars to be driven smoothly from the garage to the courtyard.
The minimal windows system was chosen for the luxury home garage thanks to its large glass sizes, minimal sightlines but also its impressive security. Slimmest glass doors have high quality aluminium for the framing profiles. This material increases the thermal performance of the sliding glass door system. Aluminium glazing system also has very high security performance with PAS24 certification and EN1627 security rating.
The minimal framed sliding glass doors let massive amount of natural light into the internal space all year round. Double height sliding glass doors and 8m long aluminium glazing system increase the sunlight from different corners and angles. High level light also brings forward the luxury interior design items.
