An airy and elegant open-space house for a disabled person has been completed using some Eclisse sliding door systems. The main objective of the architects was both to create a no-boundaries home, allowing a better quality of life to its wheelchair owner, and to guarantee an elegant design that matches the classical style of the building. The use of the Eclisse sliding door systems was essential in achieving the result.
The 200m2 flat is situated on one floor only and has wide-door aperture rooms (up to 2m) which give an airy and light feeling to the house. Three double sliding door systems have been used in the bedroom, in the living room and in the kitchen; while three single ones have been installed in the smaller rooms like the bathroom and the cloakroom.
The Eclisse sliding door systems have been supplied with a motorized unit which greatly increases the maneuverability. Contained within the framework (not visible externally) it can be controlled by a number of input variables such as self-return switch, radar, photocell, remote control. To enhance the traditional building design, the owner chose some classic white wooden doors which work perfectly with the Eclisse sliding door system.
