Replacement Windows for an Edwardian Style Home

Built in the Edwardian style in a conservation area, this home is a spacious 3000sq ft. home, 4 stories high with classical proportions including high ceilings, gracious reception rooms at first floor level and a kitchen/family room in the basement. The window style is typical of the Edwardian period: the emphasis on long casement windows with awnings above. The main feature on the front elevation is the substantial double bay window on first and second level. Before the owners replaced their window they found that the PVC windows they had in place had dramatically reduced not just the style but also the overall quality of their home. Therefore careful consideration was required for traditional replacement windows in order to meet conservation requirements,

Traditional Edwardian Replacement Casement Windows

Marvin Architectural could deliver on their window needs both aesthetically and functionally: The traditional casement window with awning above from Marvin’s Conservation range matched exactly the original window profiles with opening and operating sashes fitting neatly inside the frames providing for continuous sightlines and approved by the Conservation Section.

The particular detail Marvin Architectural could reach on was the layered wooden mullions at the 45 degree returns on the bay windows. This was further enhanced with the extended wooden architrave around the frames which was completed by the Marvin Architectural installation craftsmen. Marvin Architectural’s in-house Painting Division took care of the painting. To the rear of the home the clients used Sliding Sash windows. These timeless classics feature full frame construction and dual operating sash.
