Villa Long Island, USA
Design by Toshihiro Oki Architect
Long Island is a landmark for art lovers, home to art institution, and it is here that stands the splendid villa designed and developed by Toshihiro Oki Architects. This villa with contemporary design enjoys a splendid view of the ocean, framed by huge custom bespoke windows and doors which add light and space to the indoor environment. Extravega produced and installed 29 custom doors and windows, both fixed and sliding, custom-made with aluminum frames. The most important door and window (up to 13 square meters each) were double glazed with a total thickness of 39mm. The doors and windows were built and structurally calculated to withstand hurricanes which distinguish the island’s climate: extreme customization of the profile has allowed to the use of vertical fins, made of stainless steel AISI 316 Marine Grade, with thin handle in order to open and close the doors with ease and no effort.
