The purpose of the panoramic window is to consider the cut-out made in a facade as a direct link between solid spaces and voids, to allow an objective interactivity between interior and exterior that fulfills the premise so dear to both the Modernist and Minimalist movements; namely, the desire to frame nature without manipulating it or disturbing the perception of it. According to Le Corbusier, it introduces “the vastness of the outside world, the unity that’s impossible to counterfeit, of a landscape with tempest and radiant calm”.
While traditional window systems use glass as a filler and the frame as a structural support, we work with the intrinsic characteristic of glass and give it the function of a self-supporting element, free to slide within a frame with no constraints regarding its dimensions. Thus the panoramic window takes on its full significance, detaching itself from dimensional constraints and henceforth only measuring itself against the static limitations of the glass itself.
The PanoramAH! series of products was developed to offer the perfect combination of aesthetics, efficiency, and technique. Its unique features allow you to rethink windows, freeing them from their traditional scale and design, creating a unique and continuous dialogue between the interior and exterior.
