We are very much in-favour of simple, effective and minimalist designs. And this project is an excellent example of how, with careful consideration, you can install high-performance Danish windows that perfectly match your needs – no more, no less.
Looking around the home, you will see that the owners knew exactly how they wished to use each window in each room. For the best cost-effectiveness and best insulation, quite a few of the glass areas are fixed in position. Whilst opening sections and trickle vents are positioned perfectly where ventilation or fire escape may potentially be needed.
The kitchen window offers a lot of choice despite looking like a standard symmetrical item: half of the window can swing open from the side, and the other half is hinged at the top. The customer knew that having either option would be a compromise, so not having to choose and taking both options was the perfect solution.
The slow-grown Nordic pine section of these aluminium-clad timber windows is guaranteed to be knot-free and 90% heartwood – right from the centre of the tree. Wood is sanded and top-coated with water-based paint in an electrostatic plant.
On the outside, aluminium profiles undergo a 9-step chromatisation process followed by a varnishing.
The whole project is installed using Tremco Illbruck’s i3 installation system, which ensures class 4 airtightness of the window and the installation. Enlightened Windows are factory-trained Installers and a FENSA registered company.
