“Cynefin”…loosely translated from Welsh as “the place where you belong”.

This stunning new build home, aptly named “Cynefin” by the owners, is another successful project from Dig Architects whom we were delighted to work with again, this time supplying and installing Internorm sliding doors.

Placed some 3 meters above road level, the plot benefits from panoramic views out over the surrounding Cornish countryside and estuaries, with glimpses of Dartmoor in the distance. Architect Dig Mattholie was keen to maximise the glazing to capture these views, whilst the sliding doors were to easily allow the indoor spaces to spill outdoors. “The corner glazing is a real focal point of the design, both from outside and in; you get intriguing glimpses of it from road level and further afield. From within the house, the glass to glass corner and generous sliding units, capture the views, blur the boundaries between outside and in, and create a bright and calm light filled space”.

The Internorm HS330 lift and slide doors feature a glass corner to enjoy the prominent rural views. The aluminium exterior is finished in RAL 7021 ‘Basalt Grey’ – a popular colour for a neutral and timeless finish that complements the western red cedar cladding which will silver naturally over time. “The pale washed natural wood inner and sleek metal outer, combined with tasteful accessories, enabled a sliding door that compliments the style and quality of the house”.

Despite the site having a predominantly north orientation, Dig and his team have been able to create a home that goes beyond net zero yet provides year round comfort and low running costs thanks to the carefully curated design and thermally efficient materials. Not least the Internorm HS330 sliding doors which are triple glazed and achieve U-values of 0.73 for exceptional thermal performance all year round.

“Ecohaus were once again a pleasure to deal with, providing a quality process from start to finish, to match the quality of their high-end Internorm products”.
