Compelling geometric forms make this house an eyecatcher
If you want the seemingly impossible, HIRT moving architecture® is the right place for you. Because “impossible” isn’t in our dictionary. HIRT kinetics® SF XL window fronts open up the exterior of this truly special villa and give the impressive building a particular sophistication and elegance.
Both the architecture and the interior design are modern and Western-oriented, while carefully chosen references to tradition speak to the Russian soul.
The windows by HIRT kinetics® start at ground level and reach almost all the way up to the ceiling. They shape the rooms, giving them light and clarity.
HIRT kinetics® means technology without compromise
To achieve this sense of rooms opening up into and merging with one another, even the smallest details are of great importance. After being lowered, the almost ceiling-high windows vanish into the ground without a trace. No step or threshold mars the impression.
The technology behind HIRT retractable fronts works as reliably as a Swiss watch. Everything is well planned-out: Despite the retractable windows weighing almost a ton each, setting them in motion is child’s play thanks to perfectly balanced counterweights. They are moved by a nearly silent motor set up in the utility room. Nevertheless, the HIRT team encourages every owner to try moving them by hand at least once: You will be surprised at how little effort it takes to raise and lower the windows fronts.
Naturally, the retractable fronts by HIRT moving architecture® also meet all the requirements of safe and sustainable building. Independent assessments have confirmed excellent thermal insulation. And even in double-digit sub-zero temperatures, not the smallest breath of air will get in – thanks to ingenious pneumatic seals. In addition, HIRT designers have integrated a highly efficient drainage system. Water tightness even in heavy rain, sound insulation, storm resistance, trap protection, lotus effect, etc.: The floor level windows by HIRT kinetics® leave nothing to be desired.
If required, the retractable fronts can even change direction or go around corners. Profile-free joints on the outside let HIRT planers achieve a homogenous glass shell regardless. This effect, which allows for cubic designs, is known as “structural glazing”. It is thanks to dynamic technologies such as these that HIRT moving architecture® revolutionises the art of building, bringing a piece of nature into your home!
