Winter House is an installation of Oikos external doors, Garofoli internal doors and a custom garage door.
Winter House – Project Details
A contemporary new build in the midlands. This is an impressive and uncompromising family home.
External Doors – Oikos
As with all our projects the Winter House external doors are Oikos. Because Oikos doors are a blank canvas, the architect has freedom of design.
The main entrance is an Oikos Synua. Synua is a large format pivot door. In this case 1750mm x 2700mm. On the external side next to the door is a flush matching cladding panel. The door finish is matt black with stainless steel hardware and the house name in gloss black on the cladding panel. Similarly, the side door is in the same style. Moreover, is almost a smaller version of the main entrance. Unlike the main entrance door, the side door is hinged rather than pivot. This is an Oikos Tekno. Tekno is typically used for smaller doors than it’s big brother Synua. Finally, the garage personnel door is the last Oikos door at Winter House. This goes between the garage and the house. Furthermore, it is both a fire door and a security door.
All the Winter House doors have high security, automatic locking. The doors fully lock when closed. Access can be via; key, key card, keypad code or mobile phone app.
Internal Doors – Garofoli
No other manufacturer has the range of contemporary doors of Garofoli. Moreover, they have a neat solution for any application. Filomuro doors are the ‘in wall’ range. With this door type the frame is concealed, leaving only the door leaf visible. The door to the downstairs WC is particularly interesting. It is flush with the wall on both sides and has been clad with concrete panels. Up stairs in the house there are very minimal matt white doors. These are sound proof and fire rated.
Winter House Custom Garage Door
The architect required a door for the garage where he could have complete freedom of design. Moreover there was no headroom available for ceiling tracks inside the garage. We provided a door designed specifically for this project. The door swings out to create a canopy with no tracks in the garage. When closed the door blends with the surrounding cladding and is barely visible.
