Imaginative architecture that creates era-defining buildings takes into account every aspect of an external envelope’s design to ensure consistency of form, quality and optimum aesthetic appeal.
The award-winning exclusive new home by HAUS Collective, TrägerHAUS, located to the south west of Glasgow, is a perfect example of this approach. Named as one of the top 100 houses in Scotland since 2000 by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS), TrägerHAUS is an extensive private dwelling house that delivers an ambitious contemporary residence extending to approximately 3,750 square feet.
Built on the periphery of the Upper Whitecraigs Conservation Area on a plot that slopes down from a main thoroughfare, the property sits comfortably in its residential context being relatively unassuming – disguising its more dramatic architecture at the rear. Whilst the scale and main volume of TrägerHAUS may not be apparent at street level, this does not detract from the visual appeal of the property as a result of careful consideration of the materials for the home’s outward-looking elevation and main entrance.
Key to this was the decision to utilise an elegant side sliding sectional garage door by leading bespoke garage door manufacturer Rundum Meir. The door’s manufacture in Siberian Larch ensures consistency with property’s other timber cladding elements which perfectly complement the Caithness stone masonry. Fully automated for ease of opening and closing, the garage door operates with the smoothness and reliability that reflects the level of quality which runs through the whole building.
As with all Rundum Meir garage doors, this side sectional door was bespoke manufactured by its team of skilled craftsmen and women in Germany. As each door is made to order in numerous types of timber, including Nordic Spruce, Superior Spruce, Larch, Hemlock, Oak and Sapele, any architectural specification can be easily accommodated. This provides the freedom to design the external envelope to incorporate an interesting garage door feature that makes a significant contribution to delivering on the client’s aesthetic ambitions.
Rundum Meir side sliding sectional garage doors features panels suspended from a top track, which slot perfectly into either a traditional U-channel with drainage facilities, or a surface mounted T-bar at the foot of the door. Constructed with a double skin timber insulation and fittings which require little maintenance, the doors offer exceptional stability and durability, conforming to all relevant building standards including BS EN 13241 Part 1 Industrial, commercial and garage doors and gates for total peace of mind.
