Our customer for this project took exceptional care over the choices available and was very design-conscious. Although the exterior displays many of the more popular design choices and an equally popular Cream White colour, the interior colour coordination tells the real story of the depth of this project. Because of the high attention to detail and the customer’s requirement for various different design solutions, there was only one product that could offer all of the solutions: STM Tinium.
The customer specifically selected interior colours which worked with different areas of the home: anthracite grey, pure white and an oak stain were all utilised in different rooms. For the first time in the UK, STM’s Danish windows were fitted with black and white versions of the same handles that had been approved by the factory. Since then, this has become a much more common offering.
The tilt-turn combination unit upstairs went through many possible designs. This not only resulted in the most aesthetically-pleasing appearance, but also offered the highest level of practicality. The final unit consisted of a top-guided window and a double tilt-turn door. In addition, the lack of fixed vertical posts in the door provides an uninterrupted view of the surrounding countryside.
Symmetry was also integral to the project. Dummy sashes were carefully positioned on double casements so that a fixed section looked identical to an opening section. And this was further helped by the use of hidden hinges on a guided mechanism.
The Sunflex SVG 83 triple track sliding doors provide one of the best ways to fill a large opening with lots of glass area, without the need for vertical posts and still offering a conveniently-sized clear opening. A rare choice for aluminium-only products, these doors were dual in colour in order to match the aluminium-timber windows. The colour was matched not only to the RAL colour code, but also the gloss level.
The whole project was installed using Tremco Illbruck’s i3 installation system, which ensures class 4 airtightness of the window and the installation. Enlightened Windows are Rationel Trained installers and are also a FENSA registered company.
