The customer, Sophisticated Construction Ltd, approached us with the architectural plans
for a rear extension to the property in Kingston upon Thames, Southview Warren Park, which
featured oversized glazing installed at 2 of its sides meeting neatly to create a corner
opening. So far none of the systems could meet their design brief, as there were a few
further requirements that had to be met. The extension was to become a spa room opening
to the garden, and housing a sauna, steam room, large lounge area and connected to the
swimming pool and gym area. No particular system was specified, so the customer came to
us looking for recommendations.
Overall architectural slimline aesthetic was of the utmost importance to the customer. The
planned corner glazed doors featured 5 oversized panels of the total length of 12.5m, and the
other shorter side of 7.5m consisted of 3 panels, with triple track specified, and with the
glass-to-glass connection of the fixed panels being crucial to the overall aesthetic! Only 2 of
the panels at both sides were to be motorised. The doors also had to be in the custom RAL
1013 Oyster White (to complement the look of the stone finish of the extension)and in marine
grade coating due to the character of the extension.
