French Doors Enhance the Charm and “Built Green” Status of a Boutique-Style Hotel

This 91-room boutique hotel in Kirkland, Washington, offering tranquil lakeside views and a boutique-style feel, was designed with the highest level of guest comfort in mind. The Heathman Kirkland also features a spa, meeting space, restaurant and bar, plus a underground garage totaling 119,000 SF. The style and materials are consistent with the city’s historic buildings, featuring arches and balconies as well as brick and stucco finishes. The construction is metal stud and concrete.

REHAU System 4500 tilt-turn French doors, which exit onto the guest rooms’ Juliet balconies, contribute to the hotel’s aesthetic charm while also enhancing comfort by providing excellent energy.

The System 4500 tilt-turn design is REHAU’s top-of-the-line commercial fenestration product offering. This design allows the window to operate in either a tilt or turn position, offering three separate functions in one window: traditional casement look in the turn position, convenient top ventilation in the tilt position, and elegant picture window when closed.

The System 4500 window and door design offers the ultimate in high performance. Its features include:

  • Compresion seal sash with two weather seals
  • Multi-point locking hardware
  • Superior sound abatement properties

The system also allows for the easy configuration of awning and hopper styles with natural ventilation. The System 4500’s energy-saving design was a contributing factor to the Heathman’s designation as the first “Built Green” hotel to be constructed in Washington state.
