A house presents itself from its best side
The imaginative architecture by Diethelm & Spillmann makes this house a jewel with a lake front. And the clever technology by HIRT moving architecture® turns the lake front into an experience. Thanks to HIRT kinetics® SF XL, you almost feel like you’re on the jetty as soon as the large windows and the door are silently lowered.
The same Gauingen travertine that is used in the dining room and on the terrace also forms the edge of the retractable front. However, any other material is also possible – for example, stainless steel or wood.
Modern life on and with Lake Zurich. Dining room, kitchen, and terrace form a single whole as an extended living room.
Elegant & uncompromising: HIRT kinetics® retractable fronts are craftsmanship “made in Switzerland”
The dynamic architectural solutions by HIRT are known around the world for being elegant and uncompromising. Once the window front is completely lowered, there are no barriers. The HIRT designers perfectly devised the transition: Here, too, the Gauingen travertine forms the border and fits seamlessly between the dining room and terrace. In the end, it is these details which create a perfect picture. A door is also integrated into the retractable front. Here, all manner of variants are possible – from classic to ultra-modern. At this villa, the builders chose to continue the brass colour of the narrow window profiles, thus ensuring a noble touch.
In less fine weather, this modern and simple door guarantees access to the lake without having to lower the front. This way, the inside stays pleasantly warm as you watch the clouds drift by or the waves whip across Lake Zurich from the dining area. There is no need to worry about draughts or heat loss as HIRT kinetics® retractable fronts meet the highest standards of thermal insulation and energy efficiency thanks to sophisticated pneumatic seals. Of course, resistance to wind loads and driving rain as well as trap protection are also ensured. Beyond this, builders can choose additional features such as triple glazing, bullet resistance, or nano-sealing.
Let the possibilities of HIRT moving architecture® surprise you! With this technology “made in Switzerland”, windows sink into the ground as if by magic, gates become invisible and even solid walls can disappear at the touch of a button.
