Concave Sliding Door Creates Unique Curved Garage Space in Redevelopment Project

A bespoke curved side sliding timber garage door by Rundum Meir has enabled a unique feature garage to be created as part of the extensive remodelling of a large private dwelling in southern England.

A Rundum Original sliding garage door spanning 8m wide and 2.2m high was integrated within the new designs by BWP Architects for a major property renovation, transforming a house that had evolved in an uncoordinated and poorly designed way. 

The door provides access to a large garage space below the property’s garden level and its shape coordinates elegantly with a car turntable installed immediately in front and surrounding landscaping.

The owner tasked BWP with bringing new life to the property which has many original features. The undoing of previous conversion and extension work was necessary to enable the rebuilding of the residential property to a significantly higher standard, complete with the feature garage.

An existing detached garage to the rear was partially demolished and converted to create a private formal rear courtyard. The replacement curved garage is a stunning visual element, with the new automated Rundum Original door’s high-quality Larch complemented by bronze-coloured bespoke balustrading to add a dramatic and artistic feature to the access stair and upper courtyard over the garage.

The Rundum Original side sliding door is automated using two door-mounted MZ4 drives which are custom-made to automate these bespoke doors. These motors allow the door to traverse the curving tracks smoothly and quietly as required for this project.

The door was designed in conjunction with Rundum Meir’s UK team before being hand-crafted by its garage door experts. Every door is made to order to the highest standards using responsibly sourced materials and installed by Rundum Meir to provide an end-to-end service.

Danesch Missaghian, Director of Rundum Meir (UK) said:
“Not only is this exciting project completed using very high specification products throughout, but it is also designed superbly with the architects using a curved garage door in an interesting way that maximises vehicular access. We are delighted with the contribution our door has made to the success of this project.”

In addition to a range of different timber species, bespoke Rundum Original side sliding garage doors can be manufactured in high-strength extruded aluminium and finished in any RAL colour. This makes these garage doors suitable for any domestic, commercial or public application, with the scope for architects to think differently about how the space for a garage can be integrated into the wider building design.
