The work involved a 500 m2 attic in Marsciano in the Italian region of Umbria, half way between Perugia and Todi.
To meet the needs of the owners, the architect created three large-scale living areas linked by an entrance hallway: the open living space, the sleeping zone and a small spa in which to relax. With interplay of doorways, the distribution of the spaces responds to daily needs and brings light into all spaces, thus making the most of the attic’s dominant position over the outdoor space. For both the indoor and the outdoor openings, the designer selected only Eclisse pocket sliding door systems: the result is a space that expands as needed.
The Syntesis® sliding door system, without door jambs and architraves, was used in non-standards sizes, reaching all the way up to the ceiling; likewise, this model was installed in every room: from the bathrooms to the bedrooms, and even the relaxation area. All passage ways fitted Eclisse Marte System in white satin-finished glass with square aluminium trim, thus allowing the natural light to filter in and spread throughout the apartment. Light penetrates the interiors thanks to the large outdoor openings, these, too, made with Eclisse sliding shutters and blinds.
