Hello, FABULOUS Design!! I am a kitchen designer and I have a client (that I am actually meeting with today) looking for a similar window design for her kitchen. Would you tell me who the window manufacturer is and does the counter top extend into the bottom of the window, or butt to it? Thank you! Susan Lund Spacial Design

Hi Susanlund -

Thanks for the kind words. We actually used fleetwood sliding doors for this appliction, the Norwood 3070EX. The countertop and the exterior sill are level with each other, but separated by the required width of the recessed track. It's easier to see on the photo I've attached. Hope this helps. -Eliot

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The studio has an amazing view from three of its four sides. The client and the architects knew that sliding windows that pocket completely into the structure were a must. Mitchell and Bertram wanted to make sure to use the view in a practical and efficient way, which is why there is no corner post in this angled window.

4. A writer's studio in L.A.: Day or night, this is the perfect aerie for getting one's creative juices flowing.
The house serves as a writing studio and guest house, inspiring the owner and guests with its expansive views.
A corner window really opens a space up, especially when there is no corner post, as it directs the view out on a diagonal. It's perfect for smaller rooms and spaces, like a home office or ...
