When you think minimalism, do you imagine a Grand Design’s style new build property? Frameless sliding glass can elevate the look of all luxury properties – whatever their style may be. With this in mind, recently we were delighted to work on a Georgian mansion situated on a private estate in Oxshott, Surrey. It was vital to add a touch of modernity to the property while ensuring the sliding doors remained in-keeping with the style of the existing property.
The brief from the customers was to complement the open plan living space and the traditional Victorian sliding sash windows through the addition of a slimline framed sliding door system. Having seen Ultraline in action at the Grand Designs show at London Excel, our customers instantly recognised the high calibre of the product. Especially as they had been unable to find anything as frameless on the market.
We worked closely with the customers’ Surrey-based architect on the project, ensuring the track level would be flush to ensure the customers got their desired flush floor level creating the seamless transition from inside to outside.
This project really demonstrates how slimline sliding doors can be an aesthetically appropriate solution within architectural designs that don’t immediately appear to go hand in hand. These customers now have a sliding door system that looks more like an idyllic picture window where it’s not clear which panes move and which panes are fixed. This means the minimal sliding glass feature looks beautifully symmetrical and more like a pretty window than a sliding door, creating the best of both worlds.
