Luxury New Build Project – Pembroke Road
Having previously renovated their house in 2014, this homeowner had planned to install a replication of their previous windows and doors with accurate attention to detail. Only the front wall was retained after the renovation process. This was a stipulation of their successful planning application for a large extension to the rear.
The client wanted to be sympathetic to the original building and use slim profiled Georgian casement windows in order to retain and complement the architectural design. As well as Georgian casement windows, a large bank of doors was also requested which included Double French Doors and Bi-Fold Doors. With the size of the luxurious home being approximately 4000sq ft., there were a few challenges in this luxury new build project that needed to be addressed.
Low-Maintenance Casement Windows to Meet Luxurious Extension Requirements
One of the main challenges, and specific requirements of the brief, that this luxury new build project faced was to replicate the exact profiles of the previous windows and doors used in the old house. The 28 Georgian Casement Windows needed to have slim profiles, consistent sight lines, narrow glazing bar designs consisting of durable materials. The homeowners also wanted to mock concrete window cills using an alternative and sustainable material.
The rear of the home required 3 Double French Doors and 2 Bi-Folding Doors that would enhance both aesthetical design and ease of operation. The tall Bi-Fold Door needed to achieve a unique specification of 2700mm in height.
Marvin Architectural’s Unmatched Window Design Solutions
Aside from being recommended by the architect who has used us on several others projects in the area, Marvin Architectural was selected due to our ability to achieve slim profiles, consistent sight lines and a 16mm glazing bars design which were all possible with a profiled timber interior that Marvin Windows and Doors offer.
Marvin aluminium clad wood range offered a sustainable product which provides great architectural detail. Our clad casings are made of ultra-durable extruded aluminium, which features a factory-applied finish that resists chalking, fading, pitting, corrosion and marring.
With the ability to deliver Bi-Fold Door openings of 6400mm x 2700mm, Marvin Architectural was well equipped to provide the specific requirement of 2700mm height for this luxury new build project. This contributed to a traditional design with a contemporary operation that allowed the room to infuse with fresh air and spectacular views.
The solid wood in the panels and frames of the doors provided an elegant, crafted look and allowed for weather-tight closure. Low E II with Argon gas was standard with the glazing.The thermal and structural properties of wood combined with the right glazing make Marvin Windows and Doors the optimal choice for energy efficiency.
To replicate the concrete window cills, we supplied aluminium cills in a different colour to the window to mock a concrete cill.
