minimally framed sliding glass doors used on self-build project

A self-build project in St. Saviour, Guernsey used our minimally framed sliding glass doors to capture the surrounding views, creating an effective contrast between traditional stone and glazing. In order to fulfill a successful planning application the new build needed to use the local stone as the key building material. The contemporary glazing design contrasts effectively with the traditional features of the local stone creating bright and inviting living spaces whilst maintaining the design integrity required for the local area.

The contemporary design in the more traditional area incorporates our minimally framed sliding glass doors in three separate openings. The slim 21mm framing of these sliding glass doors takes advantage of the surrounding views with minimal visual interruption, drawing in even more natural light into the open plan living spaces as well as providing key access to the outside patio areas.

The three sets of slim framed sliding glass doors were installed as part of the self-build project allowing views to be enjoyed from the modern living spaces and creating flush threshold access onto the courtyard-like patio.

The minimally framed sliding glass doors achieve and maintain a minimalistic design desired by the client, creating light open plan living space to entertain family and friends. The aluminium framing was finished with a dark grey RAL powder coat. Contrasting effectively with the light grey stone work providing a very distinguished design finish.
