How can we make passage areas into an integral part of the daytime area?

Two large SLID wooden sliding panels separate the living room from the entrance and an interior entrance hall. These spaces tend to be nothing more than square footage for "passing through". When open, these panels integrate the living room, transforming the three separate spaces into one much more spacious area. Each one of these sliding panels, when closed, allows the corresponding area to return to its original function.

A third folding indoor enclosure, folding system PL, divides the ample living room in two when the family wishes to enjoy two separate spaces. When open, it takes up a minimal amount of lateral space. It is very lightweight and easy to close, and can be transformed into a door or partition, isolating the two adjacent but completely independent spaces.

This same philosophy played a part in designing the nighttime area: spaciousness, efficiency and privacy for maximum comfort.

How can we turn the bathroom into a spa/dressing room, thus transforming the master bedroom into a suite?

The solution is simple but quite ingenious; a KLEIN LITE system supports three sliding wall panels that can divide or join the bathroom and hallway. This provides a circulation area during the day, with a smaller yet independent bathroom. This space, dedicated to personal well-being and care, can be multiplied during use by sliding the panels and thus integrating the entire hallway and the cabinets built into its lateral wall. The bedroom is transformed into a suite.

"PL, divides the ample living room in two when the family wishes to enjoy two separate spaces"

In the children's section of the home, is it realistic to ask for both a play area and separate bedrooms?

Les chambres des enfants, deux garçons et une fillette, sont situées côte à côte. Chacune dispose de sa propre porte d’entrée, pivotante. Les deux pièces sont séparées par une cloison de 6 panneaux coulissants guidés par un système SLID TOP. Léger à déplacer et sans rail au sol, il permet aux enfants de moduler l’espace selon leurs besoins, d’unir les deux pièces pour jouer ensemble ou de les diviser à l’heure du coucher.

La cuisine, le cœur du foyer, jouit aussi de deux portes coulissantes, encastrées dans la cloison pour une plus grande discrétion. Un premier système KLEIN® SLID INTRA donne accès au hall d’entrée, le second au dégagement vers l’espace nuit. Cet agencement permet d’optimiser la circulation.

Les ferrures KLEIN® ont rendu la phase de conception plus facile. Elles sont précises, intuitives et offrent une grande flexibilité au designer. KLEIN® a transformé en réalité les espaces que nous avions imaginés, confirme José Manuel Fiori, d’Hanimal Creative.

"Los sistemas KLEIN® nos facilitaron el proceso de diseño. Son muy intuitivos, precisos y a la vez permiten mucha flexibilidad al diseñador"
