walls of sliding glass to a contemporary home

minimal windows® sliding doors were used to create two full walls of sliding glass to this contemporary home. The house project utilised these slim framed sliding doors on the ground floor living spaces and first-floor bedrooms.

the design

The house design used a three track sliding door system on each floor with the slim framed panes bi-parting away from each other. This then created a six-pane sliding door system whilst maintaining our slim frames and a shallower base track.

The light colour palette of the building was continued through the use of these aluminium sliding doors by specifying the frames in a light, white powder coat. The head, base and side profiles of the sliding door are hidden within the building finishes, leaving only the 21mm vertical frames of the minimal windows® on show.

The use of slim framed glazing on both floors to create a sliding glass wall ensures that the external design of the rear elevation is mirrored, but also the internal views through the glazing are uninterrupted in both spaces.

The upper floors use the walls of sliding glass to access the first-floor balcony which ensures that the all important indoor-outdoor living environment is available to the bedroom spaces as well as the living spaces.
