Villa, Utrecht, the Netherlands

During the modification of the villa, the following two objectives have been achieved in an impressive manner: the task was to preserve the historic character of the house and simultaneously create a climate-neutral building. The sophisticated energy concept is based - among other things - on a heat pump, geothermal energy and ground and solar collectors. In addition, the historic wooden windows have in some cases been equipped with additional windows inside and given additional glazing externally. In the extension to the rear of the house, room-high window façades were used which free up the view of the garden. Sky-Frame window systems, equipped with insulbar® insulating profiles, enable efficient thermal insulation and make their contribution to the overall concept of energy neutrality. The result is the first climate-neutral house in the Netherlands.

House M, Grünwald near Munich, Germany

With its cubic shapes, the house stands out from the exclusive residences built in other styles in the south of Munich. The newly constructed building of natural grey stone is embedded in a steep slope and progresses in a staggered z-formation up the hillside. Staircases link the two storeys between the entry point at the level of the street and the residential level. The living area has large glass panes with a view of the patio and garden. When it comes to light direction, the architect has used highly-insulated window and sliding systems from Sky-Frame, which are equipped with insulbar® insulating profiles.

One house, one colour - inside and out. In the sculptured villa the architects opted for brilliant white and an unusual use of forms. The detached house, embedded in a hillside plot, consists of two offset structures with an overhanging roof. Room-high glazing gives a lightness to the reinforced concrete construction. The frameless sliding windows from Swiss manufacturer Sky-Frame make this exceptional architecture possible. Equipped with insulbar® insulating bars, the windows boast optimum thermal insulation.

Lake House, Wörthersee, Austria

Closed towards the road but transparent on the lake side – this is the form taken by the lake house by the Wörthersee lake. The sculptured roof and large glass panels give the villa with its boathouse a futuristic quality. Wall-high picture glazing - including fly screens - open up the view of the garden and the Wörthersee. Sliding windows from Sky-Frame equipped with insulbar® profiles ensure efficient thermal insulation; most of the windows incorporate an electric opening mechanism.

In this exclusive residence, situated on a hillside and boasting a lake view that should never be obstructed, the architects used large window façades. The frameless window systems from Sky-Frame thus become a fascinating design element in this detached house. They allow the rooms to be flooded with light and open up a superb view of the lake. Optimum thermal insulation of the window and sliding systems is provided by insulbar® insulating profiles.

The floor-to-ceiling, frameless sliding windows from Sky-Frame in the mansion by the Ammersee lake do not simply provide an aesthetic quality. As well as enabling smooth transitions between the building and nature, they maximise the view of the Ammersee and additionally protect against burglary. When the sliding windows are open, the ground floor and patio plus pool merge into one. The manufacturer used insulbar® insulating profiles for thermal separation in its design for the window and façade systems.

Red Apple, Sofia, Bulgaria

The award-winning design by the architects is based on the vision of constructing new flats in the style of New York lofts. The idea was to create a comfortable residential space out of an old, abandoned factory building. Since no disused factory was available, however, the architects had to give the new building an artificial patina. By using clinker bricks they created a new building with an old-style exterior. The Red Apple façade consists of Reynaers systems, with insulbar® insulating profiles providing optimum thermal insulation.

Huge picture windows provide an impressive view and allow the rooms to be flooded with sunlight. In addition to offices, the centre also includes a hotel and residential accommodation. The architects designed the complex with Reynaers façade and window systems which incorporate insulbar® insulating bars for thermal separation.
