When the team at Blackacre Builders planned this 5,400 square foot, contemporary modern home in Houston, they wanted to include a way to connect the covered back porch to the kitchen for entertaining.
The designers ordered an ActivWall Gas Strut Window that opens on sturdy commercial-grade struts to create a serving bar and pass-through window. The unit measures 96″ wide x 48″ high and is finished in a black powder coat.
Under the window, a quartz countertop extends out to the porch so that guests can pull up stools for seating. The window has no sill, which creates a smooth counter transition. It is one of six sill options that customers can choose.
We love all the details the builders included in this space, such as a fireplace, summer kitchen, and patio bath. Inside the window bar, they added built-in wine storage and a beverage refrigerator for convenient serving.
ActivWall Gas Strut Windows are constructed with thermally broken aluminum, insulated glass, and quality seals for maximum energy efficiency when closed. When open, they add style, function, and a wow factor to any space!
