beach houses using slim framed sliding glass doors
The modern equivalent of a ‘Beach Hut’ located on the sand dunes of East Sussex uses large symmetrical elevations of slim framed sliding glass doors and structural glazing to fill the gable shape of the twin buildings for a contemporary design. The contemporary architectural design incorporates our floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors as a key design feature of the modern beach huts. The large slim framed sliding glass doors were used on the ground floor to both beach houses, creating a full wall of glazing with minimal interruptions to the fantastic front row sea and beach view with direct access onto the sand.
On the upper floors the Keller minimal windows were integrated into a gable end wall of structural glass to gain access to the small balcony overlooking the sea, minimising interruptions to the view internally and mirroring the ground floor glazing elevation.
These large elevations of minimal windows provide both the ground and upper floor with plenty of natural light, enabled by the large openings and minimal framing of the architectural doors.
Additionally they create the perfect indoor outdoor living experience, with a small 21mm sightline and a flush threshold track the internal areas merge seamlessly with the beach.
The aluminium framing on the minimal windows were finished with a dark grey powder coat. This dark finish contrasts effectively with the timber cladding giving the contemporary design a crisp appearance and a statement design finish.
The impressive design received amazing reactions when it was featured on George Clark’s Amazing Spaces television program back in December last year.
