Blurring the line between living spaces to make for the perfect view

Ultra-slim sliding doors helped transform an apartment in a striking development just outside the city of Nice on Italy’s Mediterranean coast.

The ambitious Egyptian-themed complex was originally completed over 25 years, beginning in 1970 and only reaching completion in 1993, and incorporating four pyramid-shaped buildings arranged in an amphitheatre formation.

Architect Jan Nedved was recently asked to renovate one of the properties – a luxurious suite with sea views and an open-air terrace 25% bigger than the apartment itself – and used ultra-slim sliding doors to do it.

A key aim of Nedved’s refurbishment was to blend these internal and external areas together, and viiu enabled him to create the maximum interconnectedness between the two.

As you can see, the results were stunning. If you want to achieve similar results on your next project, click here to register your interest!
