SYNUA, Armoured Pivot Door 

Architect Fernando Ponce de León oversaw the renovation project of a private villa located in Costa del Este, Panama State. What is immediately noticeable is the client’s desire to emphasise the entrance area of the villa to make it immediately welcoming and habitable.

The strategic choice fell on a Synua, the vertically pivoted security door which, in this imposing installation, is inserted into a large double-height boiserie clad with a single monochrome material.

The project

By choosing Synua, the architect wanted to adapt to the needs of architects and interior decorators by solving any dimensional problems that might have arisen from the important verticality of the room thanks to the insertion of furnishing elements that integrate perfectly into an elegant and refined context, becoming its protagonists and, at the same time, lightening and making all the spaces usable.


Ponce de León’s design approach

A lover of the Bauhaus style and of Nordic and Japanese design, Ponce de León ensures that all his projects are born from reasoning: from the negotiation with the client, to the study of his needs and of the project itself, from the proposal and analysis of the context to the development of the project with the slightest affinity and coherence from the largest to the smallest detail: this is what architecture in all its facets does.
