What you pick to frame the entry point to your house makes a dramatic impact on your sense of place as well as your guest’s first impressions.
When the soft rays of the morning sun cast a warm glow on a majestic residence, the interiors magically light up and transform it into a masterpiece of architecture and design. When night falls, how the interior lighting radiates from within can make the house a mesmerising beacon of beauty.
Optimising light through the clever use of sliding door systems is an important feature of the design of a landed home. Beyond facilitating light, such sliding doors create a seamless flow between the indoor spaces and the soul-soothing natural elements of the outdoors. They can also make a room look larger, brighter and more appealing by extending its visual length and width.
The most functional and versatile sliding door systems are made of top-quality aluminium that is lasting and rust-resistant. Bond Building, a leading specialist in facade systems, is a distributor for top European aluminium solutions brand Reynaers Aluminium. The preferred choice for many architects and contractors worldwide, Reynaers provides sliding door systems that are technologically advanced, yet combine practicality and sustainability with modern aesthetics.
Particularly popular is the Concept Patio 130 (-Lift Slide), a highly insulated slide and lift-slide system that meets the most stringent requirements of stability, safety and insulation. Available in various opening configurations, CP 130 is versatile and offers a low threshold option that makes a building more accessible. It also comes in a special configuration for corners so that the indoor and outdoor spaces become seamless. This works well even for large spaces as its robust structure allows the construction of large and stable sliding windows and doors with a vent weight up to 300kg.
The CP 130 (-Lift Slide) can be seen in its full glory on a Sundridge Park Road bungalow, as above. In addition to luxury residences, Bond Building has also worked on commercial projects like the Grace Assembly of God on Tanglin Road, and Central Link on Jalan Kilang Barat. A trusted building supplier since 2005, Bond Building also offers architectural consultancy on behalf of other brands it distributes, such as Trespa Meteon, Swisspearl and VMZINC.
