Curved vs Flat

curved facades in buildings

Since time immemorial, curved elements in buildings have been used to create superior aesthetics. These curved elements not only carry an inherent strength but are also pleasing to the eye. Curved balconies, curved top windows and doors, curved walls, domes, ellipses and spiral stairs are just some of the elements used by architects to enhance the building they are designing. It is interesting to note that in the modern age, where budget and cost are many times a main driver in design and chosen solutions, that these curved elements are often discarded or ruined by introduction of “facetted” curves rather than good old “round” curves. With the industrialisation of the building industry, many companies have become proficient in producing quantities of standard “flat” elements including glass. These industries cannot cope with curved elements and when curved glass and other elements are introduced this creates a “hiccup” in the system as these cannot be industrially done.

curved glass sliding doorsInstalling curved glass sliding doors could be one of the most incredible things you do to your home or project. But so many people look longingly at such a design; and then settle for something more conventional. “Too costly” they sigh. “A nightmare to fit” they mutter. “You need a real specialist and there’s no-one that can supply at a reasonable cost” they think. We hate to be spoilsports, but they’re not quite right.

Curved Sliding Doors Showcasing a Killer View.

Curved sliding doors are all about the illusion of space. While not looking particularly remarkable in themselves, they make the outside look spectactular. If you have a great view, there is no better way to show it off than with curved sliding patio doors that wrap around a part of the room and seem to almost disappear while giving the feeling of being outside and immersed within that fabulous vista.

Stunning curved fenestration elements, supplied by Balconette, take full advantage of panoramic sea views at Art Deco-inspired seafront house at East Lothian on the north-east Scottish coast. Curved glass doors and windows open up the sea views, while letting in a lot of light. Master bedroom curved windows follow the shape of the building and also allow in much natural light. With the curved doors, there’s no interruption to the view and they’re fantastic when opened up on a sunny day.

The Wing, which is home to the interactive Scramble Experience, was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in March 2015 during the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.


A spokesman for the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust said: “The Wing is built in the shape of a Spitfire wing, with a central ‘cockpit’ area on the first floor housing a café with unbeatable views out over the channel.


“At 19 metres wide, this is certainly one of our largest curved doors and it looks absolutely amazing! The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust’s Cockpit Café must have one of the best views in Kent and we are delighted to have helped the client realise their vision with this prestigious project.” Concluded Effi Wolff, Managing Director at Balcony Systems.
