This house overlooking Lake Silvaplana reveals its true magic when the window is lowered
The Engadin is known for its light, its winds, and its rough, honest nature. This large panorama window opens up a spectacular view of the landscape and sky while leaving the wild weather firmly outside thanks to its perfect thermal insulation. But when the summer sunlight dances across the lake, the retractable window, part of the HIRT kinetics® SF 90 series, invites the Engadin right into the living room and lets you experience nature with all your senses.
Playing with motion: HIRT moving architecture® creates a “wow” effect
HIRT moving architecture® does away with rigid buildings. The clever technology revolutionises architecture and quite literally puts things in motion. The retractable windows in the HIRT kinetics® series are always custom manufactured. You decide what features you want: triple layer glazing, nano sealing to achieve a lotus effect, sun protection, and more. HIRT windows meet the highest standards when it comes to energy efficiency, safety, and tightness. HIRT technology is 100 percent weather-resistant, having proven itself in salty air, tropical heat, and the icy cold.
By the way: The example of the “window seat at Lake Silvaplana” also serves as an impressive demonstration of how the technology behind HIRT kinetics® is useable not only for windows. To provide protection against storms or wintery cold, the same principle is used here to allow wood-panelled shutters to be raised at the press of a button. Garage doors and even entire walls can be moved just as easily.
Whether it’s a floor-length panorama window or a cosy window seat: Change the way you think about walls and windows. Magic them away with HIRT moving architecture® and bring a piece of nature into your home!
