Casa Las Palmeras was designed by architect Valentín de Madariaga and his fabricator partner Grupo Moncada.
They used a total of 18 sets of sliding patio doors throughout the home, to create a smooth transition from interior to exterior.
The sliding doors were designed by Reynaers based on the Hi-Finity system. The slim sight lines and fully automated mechanism allows homeowners to open and close the doors at the push of a button.
Fabricator José Miguel Moncada of Grupo Moncada said: These specially designed doors are 5.9m high and weigh 285kg. The pace of construction forced us to finish in record time; the entire project was completed in nine months.
The Hi-Finity sliding elements, installed by Grupo Moncada, had the tracks set deeply into the floor at specific points, with the top and side profiles integrated into the walls.
The only thing that remained visible was the meeting section of the minimalistic profiles.
The sliding door has been designed so that the outer frame can be concealed behind the surrounding wall, making wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass a possibility in any home.
Marketing Manager at Reynaers Rebecca Cope said: This project was very much a bespoke solution, but the unique design means that even the heaviest of these doors will glide open and closed with minimal effort.
