Skylights / Roofs (SolaGlide)
The Thales Cafe in Kadikoy Istanbul, hold the distinction of a completely glass and retractable patio cover. Libart architects have designed and constructed the complete patio building, from retractable skylights to folding glass panel door, to the whole support structure.
The durable vertical section of the sunroom is formed up of 10mm frame-less tempered glass sliding doors, that retract onto one another for a seventy five percentage opening. The fresh air feel of the façade is complemented by our renowned retractable roof system, a 12 bay wide, 75% opening glass roof that features 25mm thick insulated glazing panels, specially designed to reduce solar glare and provide excellent insulation.
Our Thales Cafe and patio enclosure is a perfect example of the flexibility of our designs and systems, allowing a perfect mesh of “ indoor comfort, outdoor freedom” and design to match the locale.
