When the owners purchased this beautiful home on a corner block in leafy Mosman, the house hadn’t been given a facelift for decades. It was time for a much-needed refresh, inside and out. One of the top priorities was modifying the windows and doors to open the home up to the green garden and blue skies.
To create a sense of connection between the interior and exterior spaces, the team at Orion Aluminium was consulted and Vantage® 618 MAGNUM™ sliding doors were chosen for the task. The doors span floor-to-ceiling where possible to maximise the view and natural light. The flush sill helps this connection to feel seemless.
The project required a complex corner configuration with cavity sliding doors to give the owners greater flexibility and space within the home. These doors tower a whopping 2.7 metres high, creating a stunning focal point for occupants and visitors alike.
The Elevate™ 462 Awning and 466 Sliding Windows were selected to maintain continuous sightlines and match the designer’s preference for and square edge forms.
To complete this modern facelift, Zeus matt black finish was selected for the aluminium windows and doors.
Because the windows and doors were so expansive, thermal glass was used for added insulation to help keep the home cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Additionally, remote-controlled highlight awning windows are easily opened for natural air flow and circulation – especially during the colder months when doors are normally closed.
All windows and doors are complemented with ICON™ hardware – chosen for its durability and style.
The result is a modern oasis of privacy and beauty that will delight its owners for years to come.
