Glass sliding doors seamlessly connect living space and terrace: A holiday home in the United States
A flat roof house has become a new retreat for an American family. The idyllic middle of nature inspired the "Bates Masi" architects in their design. The completed modern building fascinates with an open housing concept, where the boundaries between and inside are blurred. Large sliding glass doors seamlessly connect the living area with the terrace and the balcony. In this way, the living room in the garden is expanded and the family can enjoy some wind, rain and sun protected space.
Sliding glass doors as an important architectural element
The holiday home is located in Annapolis, USA. The builders, a young family with children, wanted to build a summer house on the shore. They set themselves a functional building, where rustic country-house aesthetics meet minimalist modernity. The architects designed a contemporary flat roof house, which looks at itself with its purist architectural language and wood facade. Constructed as an environmentally friendly climate wood house with board plywood elements, the wooden shelves of the "Cove" houses allow for a seamless facade enclosure. Damit, in particular, prevents mold damage caused by damped water.
While the wooden façade protects the holiday home from three sides against weather inflows, the house opens through large sliding glass doors to the river. The sliding door system allows a seamless transition between in and out and maximizes the available living space, as it extends the residential area even in summer. In the first warehouse, sliding doors provide ample sunlight in the living room and create a connection between me and the terrace. In the second storey is the spacious living area with kitchen and adjacent dining area in a balcony. So the family can sit comfortably in the bad weather and let the evening sound out in the balcony.
Sliding glass doors let plenty of sunlight into those spaces
The first stockwork manages these four bedrooms. They are protected by massive wooden walls from sight. The first stock is still an informal living room, where the family can relax after a long day in the open. The center of communication in the house is undoubtedly the residential area in the second warehouse. There is a spacious kitchen, a dining area and a comfortable reading area. Load another espresso for eight people and numerous lounge beds for relaxing in the balcony.
The device is purposefully slim, to the minimum. Numerous interior cabinets provide ample storage space in the kitchen. The high-gloss fronts of the upper mirrors reflect the sunlight and make the room appear brighter. The cabinets are made of solid wood. The attractive woodworking automatically captures the look. Multiple wall shelves offer storage space for crockery and storage area for vases, amphorae and other home accessories.
Directly next to the kitchen landscape, a wide sofa bed relaxes in front of the fireplace. The residential area offers seating for 10 guests. So cozy cooking dinner with family and friends is nothing more than away.
A designer chair with metal frame and leather seat directly next to the sofa bed offers the possibility to relax with a book and a glass of wine and watch the boats in the river.
A more comfortable dining area rounds off the living program. The spacious living area has three glazed sides. The sliding doors allow you to open and close electronically and can expand the living space even further in this way. Perfect for a summer party in the outdoors.
