Still under construction our Alwoodly project is an installation of 3 Oikos pivot doors in Leeds.

Project Details – Pivot Doors Leeds

Alwoodley is an exclusive development of just 2 luxury duplex apartments. Golf course views and using only products from the very best manufacturers make this one of the area’s best properties.

Lakes Doors Architectural are supplying and installing two Oikos Synua pivot doors as the apartment entrance doors. Furthermore an impressive 4.5m Oikos Nova glass pivot door will make up the building entrance.

Main Entrance

For such a prestigious location and building the client wanted something remarkable for the main entrance door. As well as offering high security the product must allow large amounts of light and be visually impressive. Certainly fitting this brief is the Oikos Nova. Chosen in a metallic gold finish Nova creates an exciting main entrance to the building. Frame-less sidelights allow the finishes to pass for external to internal virtually uninterrupted. Consequently, natural light fills the hallway.

Security is a designed in feature with all Oikos doors. First of all laminated, ballistic rated glass makes up the door & sidelights. Also the Arkey electronic locking fully locks the door whenever closed. Access is gained via smartphone app , proximity card or high security key. As a result the Nova system is Class 3 security.

Apartment 1 Entrance Door

The entrance to apartment 1 sits directly behind the Nova. Consequently it was critical that the two should line through and be the same size. Above all the clients wanted a luxury feel for the project. Therefore wenge oak finish was a great choice for their Synua. Likewise with the Nova, gold finish hardware was chosen giving continuity. Furthering the architectural feel of this doors is the surrounding Oikos SWS cladding. This extends either side of the door, lines the reveals and covers the soffit. As a result it creates a pod like feel.

In contrast to wenge oak the internal finish is Laminam porcelain in a rust cor-ten effect. This exclusive material gives a feeling of warmth and quality. Finally the custom internal handle gives a clean look.

Apartment 2 Entrance Door

The clients at apartment 2 selected the same wenge oak finish for both sides of their Oikos Synua pivot door. In continuity with the Nova and apartment 1, again the gold finish hardware.

The Oikos Synua EI60 pivot doors are fire rated for 60 minutes.
