Ensemble of villas in Hamburg
This exclusive ensemble of residential and event houses is being built in association with the interior designer Ulrich Stein Einrichtungen and the architects of ORP. In it, three very different types of window from our portfolio harmonise perfectly with each other.
In the residential building, all the elements are of the type KORN IP-55 – large French windows (measuring 1.29 m x 3.06 m), mullion-and-transom facades and large dimensioned integral sliding doors with retractable seals.
The exciting contrast between the metal surface on the outside and the fine wooden finish on the inside, as well as the sharp-edged profiles and flush handles, emphasise the modern language of the architecture used. By installing pre-frames to begin with, the other workmen were able to work precisely to the reveals without damaging the finished elements.
The event house, standing in park-like grounds, is surprising in the shapes used, which are inspired by the style of a Japanese pagoda. The frames of the 19 KORN burckhardt’s glide sliding doors, with an overall area of 286 m², were integrated into the façade on all four sides, flush with the surface. The colour of the Eloxal surface emulates that of high-class architectural bronze.
Nine KORN retrac system descender fronts with a total window area of 200 m² open up a bright architecture, bathed in light and suffused with air, in which all elements can be lowered into the floor at the same time. Outdoors and indoors blend into each other, producing a spectacular sense of spaciousness.
