South Water Flats
Open, contemporary, breath-taking: three words that describe the South Water Flats private home perfectly. Yet this secluded Canadian mansion is so much more than that. Large glass surfaces of Reynaers Aluminium windows, curtain walls, and folding doors bring together the lakeside setting and modern interior. Relax and enjoy unlimited peace of mind.
Come to shore at Kempenfelt Bay in Ontario, Canada and visit South Water Flats. The villa’s welcoming, open design connects you with the surrounding nature. Sketch Design Build Inc. helped orchestrate the construction of this 330-square meter residential building, while local partner Big Glass Openings (BGO) carefully installed Reynaers Aluminium solutions to create a spectacular result. As BGO is led by the homeowner of South Water Flats, a personal touch is apparent in every detail of the impressive project.
Considering the personal connection and quality materials, you can tell how luxury and authenticity form the main theme of this one-of-a-kind getaway. And in order to create openness without sacrificing the comfort of your home, you need big profiles set in glass - and lots of them too.
South Water Flat’s open design welcomes visitors and connects them with the surrounding nature.
South Water Flats is built to impress. Visitors can actually see through the house to reveal the lake behind it, all thanks to the impressive glazed entry with its feature pivot door. And what a lake view it is: a ConceptFolding 77 bi-folding door from Reynaers Aluminium, five metres wide and three metres tall, creates a seamless flow of interior to exterior living space in an instant. Next, structurally glazed corners allow even more wide-open views on the ground level. This combination of systems allows homeowners to take full advantage of the morning light.
