Contemporary Extension featuring Aluminium Sliding Doors

This 1960s bungalow west of Edinburgh has been completely transformed by the addition of a contemporary extension and remodelling, which features a 6.6m wide set of SUNFLEX UK SVG30 aluminium sliding doors.

Designed by the highly rated :thatstudio architects and built by GRS Property Services, this single storey extension replaced a previous lean-to addition, increasing not only the useable living space but also transforming the relationship between the house and garden.

The 6-panel set of SVG30 aluminium sliding doors were supplied and installed by Mitchell Glass, SUNFLEX UK's long established and highly regarded distributor, based in Galashiels, Scotland. The SVG30 aluminium sliding doors were chosen because of their incredibly slim 30mm sightlines, with the doors configured with two panels sliding to each side from the centre behind a fixed frame - creating a central opening over 4 metres wide.

Connecting the inside and out was a key desire for the home owners, with beautiful slate tiles chosen for both the house and patio to provide an almost seamless link between inside and out. The triple track of the SVG30 provides an near-flush transition, with the colour of the doors chosen to closely match both the slate floor and zinc cladding of the roof, whilst providing the perfect contrast to the timber cladding that features on the returns.

With fifteen years experience Mitchell Glass are capable of working with SUNFLEX UK products to ensure compliance with the more stringent requirements of Scottish Building Regulations, optimising product configurations to match both performance and aesthetic appeal.

Speaking of the choice of SVG30 doors Lewis Roden, Managing Director of Mitchell Glass, said

"the narrow frames of the SVG30 perfectly suited the requirements of this property and once we had identified that it was a case or working with SUNFLEX UK and the architects to devise a design that met Building Regulations but also was in keeping with the overall design of the extension.

"What is really key to the design is that when the doors are closed the large panes of glass bring light into the completely transformed ground-floor of the home, yet when the doors are opened there is a real connection between the house and the garden. The teams at :thatstudio and GRS Property Services did a fantastic job on this project and the end result is a stunning example of what can be achieved with an extension and remodelling project."
