The selection of the sliding system was paramount to the overall design. Donatos Dinis of the Dinis Real Estate and Development Group explains they looked at a number of systems and ultimately selected the Reynaers system as it was the only tested and complete system on the market while being affordable. ‘Our client loves this system because it results in unobstructed views. With its hidden profiles, this was the only system we felt that could do this,’ says Dinis.
Produced in collaboration with local fabricator Simpas, the Reynaers systems ultimately specified are the motorised Hi-Finity with double glazing for the large sliding patio doors and CS 77-HV for the opening windows. The Hi-Finity sliding door is a state -of -the-art structurally glazed door offering the possibility of floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall glass, along with an ergonomically designed handle and concealed locking system. The CS 77-HV is the hidden vent variant of the CS 77. Here, the hidden vent ties in well with the minimalist architectural style. The vent profile is invisible from the outside, concealed behind the outer frame, which keeps the lining to a minimum. Profiles from the functional range can further be easily combined with this design.

There were a number of practical issues with respect to the installation of a modern system into the existing building frame. In order to keep the view open, a wide opening was required. This necessitated a wide beam without a column or any excessive depth obstructing the view. The beam specified for the wide span opening has added carbon fibres in order to reduce the beam depth and allow for full views outward. Further, rain gutters were routed through the columns and into the flooring.
The result is impressive. Traditional in form and scale, the introduction of a modern aluminium sliding system is a powerful element in line with the local architectural vernacular.
