The zero-level threshold of the ASS 77 PD.SI sliding system creates a smooth transition between the living room and the terrace.
With the development of a 150 square meters holiday house in Denmark, architect BirgitteBruun has created a place for her and her family to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Together with the architectural practice Raw Architects, they have created a holiday house that simultaneously provides an incredible sea view in all seasons and focuses on maintenance-free materials and a minimalist design. Using the Schüco ASS 77PD.SI (Panorama Design Super Insulation) sliding door system, all these requirements are met with a single system.
BirgitteBruun wanted a holiday house for her family that was in distinct contrast to their usual home. The coastal house is intended to be a place of freedom and tranquillity, shielded from the outside world and welcoming to nature. The view of the water with its positive and calming effect was therefore especially important and something BirgitteBruundid not want to miss, even in the colder seasons, deciding to use a solution that combines outside with inside. The Schüco ASS 77 PD.SI sliding system offers the family an unparalleled vista.
The panoramic design of the Schüco ASS 77 PD.SI sliding system is distinguished by its minimal profile face widths in the interlock section and an outer frame and vent frame concealed in the attachment to the building structure, while the profile-integrated, electronic drive and locking system provide additional convenience. The smooth transition between the living room and terrace, the family's "favourite room" was also very important to BirgitteBruun, and was made a reality using a zero-level threshold. This, combined with the Schüco FWS 50.SI façade system, created a holiday house flooded with light, with large window fronts and an all-encompassing sea view.
BirgitteBruun and her family like to spend their downtime relaxing, so from the beginning the goal was to create a practical and simple, yet stylish, house which would not require a lot of maintenance. This was accomplished through the use of hard-wearing cedar wood as cladding for the house and the planks of the decking. The wood is resistant to sea salt, does not require any varnishing and ages beautifully, fitting in perfectly with its maritime surroundings. Meanwhile, the absence of hedges and lawns means no further garden work is necessary, and individual, easy-to-maintain rosehip bushes surround the house.
One element of the terrace in particular seizes upon BirgitteBruun's attachment to the sea: the so-called "Ibiza den", a nook protected from the wind, allows you to sleep outside and watch the sunset the whole year round. When it comes to the furniture, BirgitteBruun has also remained true to her scaled-back style. The spartan, minimalist interior restricts itself to the essentials so as not to detract from what is important: free time, relaxation and peace, all with a coastal view.
