A very memorable project for us as it marks a period of time where we were all working from home. A lot of the remote design work and discussions from this home helped us to realise so much more was possible without most of the travelling and fuel usage.
The result is another beautiful example of a Cotswold home with the RAL7032 Pebble Grey exterior. Adding the colour coded hinges give the greater opening area of a side hinged window, without having the normally shiny steel hinges glittering in the sunlight – much more subtle.
RAL 9001 is a cream white; often used on the interior due to its slightly warmer tone than the brighter white options. Combine that with the black handles on both doors and windows, and we have a rather clean and smart design all around.
Slightly beyond the windows, timber cladding clad separates the upper and lower screens at the back of the house. A few options were discussed here, but this is definitely the best one. Ultimately, we the removal of a small balcony section
Those large screen had a few different ideas discussed too. In the end, the equally-split sections made a lot of logical sense, and slightly increasing the size of the small windows at each corner just makes them more useful compared to the old, tiny plastic openers.
We’ve used Compriband weather sealing tape and an expanding foam air-seal for energy efficiency and a long lasting installation, no silicone here! As well as being a premium insulation seal, the product frames the windows with a dark shadow gap.
