Just west of London lies the picturesque town of Windsor, which most recently held the attention of the world as the dreamy location for not one, but two royal weddings.
In Windsor you’re sure to find plenty of quaint cottages, retro 1970s family homes – and of course, quite a few modern properties that have had the ‘Grand Designs’ treatment. It was a joy to work on one of these impressive builds in this recent project.
Modern and traditional – the perfect blend
This particular client had bought a 1970s property that needed a complete renovation. Through hard work and dedication they succeeded in turning it into a minimalist haven – complete with a lush outdoor area filled with traditional english greenery.
To make the most of the transformation and welcome in an abundance of natural light, the client needed the right glazing system to achieve that all-important wow-factor.
Opening up possibilities with Ultraline
For us, there’s only one choice for maximising outdoor views and bringing a feel of modernity to any property and that’s the unparalleled Ultraline Sliding Doors system.
We recommended going for a double glazed 12m wide set of 3 pane sliding doors in brushed platinum – perfect for watching the seasons change. With Ultraline, the client would also have the benefit of 20mm sightlines, a smooth-glide opening mechanism and an innovative electric locking system for peace of mind.
An unforgettable final result
The clients love that the Ultraline doors allow for maximum flow of fresh and natural light – whatever the time of day or season. The minimal sightlines help them to soak up that glorious view of the great outdoors – and now they can truly enjoy their home all year round.
Most significantly for us, this property features a floating corner at each end – a stunning, completely unique architectural illusion that allows the entire end of the house to disappear into the walls.
We also installed return pieces of glazing which disappear into a wall cavity. We call this a ‘sliding pocket’ door – it’s one of those features that instantly takes your breath away with its beauty.
Needless to say, the client is thrilled with how the product choice has enhanced the aesthetic of their home. And we personally have found sitting in this area of the property (even just for a few moments) is a tranquil experience that melts away the pressures of everyday life.
We wish our clients many happy years enjoying the natural beauty of Windsor!
