Luxury villa conversion
May 2019

Bloot Architecture, based in the Netherlands, specified the Husky 100 sliding door system from P C HENDERSON for the renovation of a 1950s luxury villa in the Veluwezoom National Park.

Key features included the creation of a large open plan living area, full of natural light, with the inclusion of a flexible office space built on via an extension. The client also required an entresol space on the upper floor which could be opened up or closed off to be used as a guest room when necessary. 

The architectural practice’s solution was to install large sliding partition doors in both areas which, when combined with large windows and passageways, would allow natural light to penetrate through the building freely.

Tjeerd Bloothofd, owner of Bloot Architecture, said: “The design included two large oak veneer doors in both areas so it was also important that we specified sliding door hardware which could cater for such heavy doors – whilst also ensuring optimal performance and minimal maintenance. We had specified P C Henderson for a previous project so I didn’t hesitate in recommending the brand to our client”.

With a weight capacity of 100kg, P C Henderson’s Husky 100 sliding door hardware was used in both the living area and the entresol.

Andrew Royle, Sales and Marketing Director at P C Henderson said: “Creating flexible living areas with functional use of space is certainly a rising trend at the moment. As a result we’ve noticed a significant increase in the specification of partition sliding doors as they’re a great way to create such spaces – the village project by Bloot Architecture is a fantastic example of this”.
