Royal Pavilion, Poundbury
Poundbury is a traditional quintessential English village just outside of Dorchester designed by the Prince of Wales. The picturesque town consists of stunning cottages, Georgian townhouses and town squares. The architectural detail within the traditionalist buildings are full of rich classical elements such as sliding sash windows, decorative mouldings and stone colonnades.
The Royal Pavilion is a significant architectural landmark in the area, consisting of twenty luxurious apartments with an array of special facilities including a private Spa area. Marvin Architectural was specified to deliver a superior window and door package for this prestigious development.
Creating An Exclusive Benchmark For Luxury Living
This collection of luxurious apartments have been designed with high ceilings combined with dramatic large round-top sliding sash windows and French doors that open onto individual private terraces.
The large sliding sash windows are a key design point both inside and outside these prestigious apartments. The client CG Fry & Son had designed the classical building for contemporary living. To achieve this, Marvin Architectural worked closely with the architect to reach their desired modern performance specifications without impacting on the traditional slim profile of the windows and doors.
Blending Traditional Design With Moden Low Maintenance Performance
Maintaining an authentic traditional window and door design with contemporary performance was central to this project. Georgian sliding sash windows are a key design feature in the apartments, which enhances the amount of natural light and form a classical feel.
The Marvin Aluminium Clad Wood Sliding Sash Window provided a unique solution for this project. The low maintenance extruded aluminium exterior combined with state-of-the-art double glazing and airtight sealing system exceeded the expectations of modern performance for the architect.
The wood interior provided authentic warmth and character without the worry of regular maintenance thanks to the aluminium exterior. Marvin’s aluminium clad wood sliding sash windows seamlessly combine next-generation technology with Marvin’s legendary craftsmanship without sacrificing the traditional UK sliding sash look.
