Studio 29 Architects used Eclisse pocket door systems in this property for their clients who wanted to ‘make the most of the space’ available. They required multi-functional spaces that could be opened up or closed off, for example, when guests came to stay. Flexibility throughout the whole plan was a key feature of the brief as was making the space feel ‘generous’.
"I chose Eclisse because we wanted to use discrete extra large bespoke doors to help the house feel spacious and to allow more natural light throughout..." Louise, Studio 29 Architects
The large bespoke sliding pocket door system used for the entry from the hallway to the main living area mirrored the sliding glass panel that then provided access into the garden.
Louise, from Studio 29 Architects who has used our systems on a number of other projects said, “I chose Eclisse because we wanted to use discrete extra large bespoke doors to help the house feel spacious and to allow more natural light throughout. The doors gave an adaptability to the property and once opened created larger, more social spaces, and when closed the areas became cosier private areas - particularly useful for houseguests. The doors were all full height to create the feeling of extra height, they essentially were sliding walls rather than doors. The Eclisse system not only solved the requirement for the sliding doors to be fire rated but the top hung mechanism meant that the floor surface was free from guides and allowed the floor material to be continuous with the next room enlarging the perception of the space”.
