This stunning home was a new build for our clients. After living in a more traditional home, they were ready for a fresh and contemporary space. The home uses ArborCrest Commercial grade windows and doors right throughout, and all door tracks are recessed, to allow a seamless flow between the inside and out. The combination of sliding and fixed glass panels give our clients a lovely bright and open living space that shows off their great outdoor entertaining area.
This bright open space is enhanced by the addition of highlight windows, which also help to break up the height of the ceiling, whilst letting in lots of natural light. The back entertaining area features a large Multistack door that is in keeping with the homes theme of clean lines and contemporary style. The three panel slider has a recessed track, and a smooth open and close motion. This type of sliding door was chosen to minimalize the amount of frame seen as the size of the glass panel can be wider than when selecting other door styles. The larger glass panels also reduce the disruption to the view of the pool, as there is less frame at eyesight to distract you. The large panels create the perfect frame for the pool area, and allow easy access to the outside as the panels easily and seamlessly slide back to one direction rather than stacking either inside or outside.
Outside, the entertaining area is completely open. The clever installation of retractable screens between the outside rendered columns, allow the air to flow in, while also keeping the insects out. This allows the internal doors to be open, without the worry of letting flies in. The alternative option for this project would have been to install our ArborCrest retractable screen on the Multistack door which would then allow the customer to ventilate their home when they are not entertaining as well.
The bifold doors in the courtyard compliment the horseshoe shape, that allow the clients to completely open, partly close, or completely close the courtyard. It also incorporates the use of a sashless window within the bifold door for easy ventilation.
This very functional kitchen has an ArborCrest top hung cavity sliding door to access the BBQ easily, and a sashless window directly onto the stone benchtop, that can be used as an unconventional servery, allowing incredibly easy access to all areas outdoors, and creating the perfect entertaining space.
