In the suburbs of Mungia (Bizkaia) municipality, lost in the natural environment, there is a one-floor single family house where we can see a strong connection between the home interior design and the surrounding nature. You can enjoy spectacular views thanks to numerous large glass walls keeping its privacy, however.
From the bathroom you can enjoy the nature at any time of the year, turning a simple shower into an absolute fusion with the extraordinary environment.
It is a dry-stone wall construction with thermal and acoustic insulation elements and other features. Besides, some passive insulation solutions, floor and aerothermal heating were applied.
Moreover, the structure takes the advantage of the exernal lighting in every room. The building is represented on a rectangular map and various areas are connected by corridors, with large windows or light cubes projecting it towards outdoors.
The sliding door system
Right at the entrance you will get into a large bright living-room which is separated from the kitchen with 2 sliding doors, absolutely hidden in the central dividing walls when being open.
The doors made of iron and glass were installed with a Mekkit3D sliding system, in its EGO version for the flush to floor and ceiling doors without an upper beam.
Why to choose it
A long corridor lit by numerous external glass walls leads to different rooms through a series of sliding doors made of polished wood and iron, with the installation of Mekkit3D sliding system as well. A special design of this passage was studied to allow the external lighting into the rooms, offering a contemporary aesthetic solution in the minimalist style of the project.
Another passage area, diagonal to the main one, was turned into a real closet of the owner’s room, using every centimeter of the two walls thanks to 2 wall cabinets designed and created in the way to make a low visual impact when the doors are closed. The final effect is made by the 2 white walls which conceal a large useful space, hidden behind the fine design and functionality of the Kubikina furniture hinges adjustable in 3 axes by Krona Koblenz.
