Unobstructed panoramic 7-meter picture windows from Windowmakers blurs inside and out whilst bringing in natural light.

The site this Waitoki family home sits on is wider at the rear than the front, therefore to maximize the width of the house at the rear, architect Joseph Long designed the home widening at the back. A feature became the large multi slider with a custom-built 100-degree complex internal corner – a true statement piece.“The style of the Windowmakers joinery I chose is very modern looking, square and chunky –which compliments the building’s form and chosen materials. Use of the over the wall sliders stacking outside of the cladding gives a full opening so there is no corner structure or post in the way.” say Long of LTD Architectural.“With the external slider having an unusual internal corner of 100 degrees, Windowmakers was the only company that I felt confident to work with to make this functional.” says homeowner and builder Ryan Thomas, Director of Armada Construction.Heidi Johnston of Windowmakers was delighted at the outcome. “We love the finished product and think that the design has helped maximise the space and take this home to the next level,” says Johnston. “With young children in the home there are also two skins of safety glass so the kids can play care-free. Their biggest challenge ahead will be keeping the glass clean!”The Thomas family had a tight deadline with a baby nearly due. “We only chose suppliers with an excellent level of service and that we could trust to deliver on time. As a construction company, Windowmakers are by far our preferred joinery partner,” said expectant mother and business owner Beck Thomas.For more inspiration visit the Windowmakers Design Centre, 79 Forge Road, Silverdale, Auckland.
