A contemporary garden room was added to the rear of a listed property in Wiltshire using slim frame sliding glass doors. The new modern extension uses a large elevation of slim frame sliding glass doors to maximise the natural light providing a seamless transition between the interior and exterior, especially with the smooth limestone floor tiles continuing between both living spaces.
The large minimally framed doors enables the new living space to be opened up onto the garden, enjoying the views of the perfectly landscaped grounds. The flush threshold makes it even easier to transition between both internal and external living spaces
Even in the colder winter months the views over the gardens are maintained with a high thermal performance from the sliding glass doors. Although the modern garden room faces south east, the flat roof protrudes slightly to minimise solar gain.
With flush floor finishes, 21mm framing and frameless surround finishes these minimal framed sliding doors create an impressive architectural design and striking external aesthetic to the new modern garden room.
The minimally framed doors maximises the connection between the interior and exterior and is a welcomed addition to the listed property by the local planning department.
The dark grey RAL finish was chosen for a cohesive design matching the powder-coated aluminium frames of the sliding glass doors and the aluminium pressings around the roof.
