In the past five years, the whole concept of indoor-outdoor flow has changed. It’s not just single sliding doors opening up spaces to the outdoors – houses now have entire walls of glazing and extra-large openings, as this project illustrates.
To provide a large opening to the terrace on the top level, the designer specified extra heavy-duty powdercoated joinery from the Atlantic High Performance Suite, manufactured by Fisher West Auckland.
These 2.6m x 4.5m sliding doors are paired with additional Pacific Residential Eurostacker sliding doors on the lower level and other window joinery from the Pacific Residential Suite.
Ross Buckingham, co-owner of Fisher West Auckland, says the Sandstone Grey powdercoated sliding doors on both levels feature argon-filled double glazing that provides extra insulation.
“Both sets of doors have flush sills that create a smooth surface, which doesn’t trap dirt and debirs. They also feature a mortice escutcheon lock system, which is machined into the joinery for added security and ease of operation.”
Buckingham says another special feature of the joinery is the integration of the windows with the kitchen benchtops. The custom-designed windows were built to fit the granite with zero tolerance.
