Entrance Architecture International Contest “the Space beyond the Threshold”

SYNUA, Armoured Pivot Door 

The dwelling is located within a Unesco heritage site, an urban residence, part of a continuous urban front in the heart of the medieval city of Regensburg, Bavaria. The new building is a private house with a strong contemporary character with open and bright interior spaces, high quality materials, advanced building criteria and energy standards.

Synua, the line of armoured doors with vertical pivot for large dimensions and coplanar to the wall, was chosen for this dwelling, which easily adapts to the strong contemporary spirit of this house.

The Project

The project responds to both the city’s and the client’s needs, maintaining continuity in the main materials used and practising a contemporary lifestyle. This has led to neutral and bare façades but with the largest possible windows.

Internally, a single ‘public living space’ was designed, with a living-dining area on the lower floor and a fitness area with swimming pool on the upper floor.
The building ensures high thermal resistance, with high-performance windows and doors and automated awnings. The lighting and heating systems throughout the house are managed through touch screens located on each floor.

Contemporary taste in a medieval city

On the outside, ultra-thin crystal railings without handrails, windows with concealed invisible frames, and mirrored glass reflecting the buildings on the street add an effect of abstraction and dematerialisation without altering the continuity and character of the city, but at the same time revealing the contemporary and unique nature of the home requested by the clients. The project was a finalist of the ‘World Architectural Festival’ in Singapore in 2012.
