Adding ‘Grand Designs glazing’ to a modern eco-home in Kent

Building a dream home from scratch is fast-becoming a goal for many property enthusiasts. Thanks in part to everyone’s favourite Channel Four renovation show which has become synonymous with super-minimal glazing solutions, timber cladding and modern frameless glazing.

Working on these properties often means we get to be innovative with the solutions we suggest and can get creative with product combinations and selections. With this particular project, we were able to open up design possibilities through a mixture of grey and black Smart, Ultraline and Schuco glazing products, creating a stunning eco new build.

Choosing products with a Grand Designs flair

With eco homes emerging as a huge trend (and a great way to be kinder to the planet) it’s important that we used on-trend products to match.

This property had a minimalist aesthetic which we wanted to complement, but it wasn’t just about looks. We also needed the product selection to be of superior quality and thermal efficiency, while offering the best value for our customers.

Why Smart aluminium glazing products?

Between these two ranges, we’ve got every box ticked to create an efficient eco home that’s sure to last a lifetime – using frameless glazing and timber cladding.

Smart is a superior aluminium glazing system, which not only performs well in every category, but is excellent value. This system offers a fantastic U value and stunning aesthetic. It also comes with a 10 year general guarantee and a 25 year guarantee on the powder coated aluminium and the colour finish. Essentially, this is a glazing solution you can really trust.

Why Ultraline Sliding Doors?

If you’re looking for an innovative sliding door system with supremely minimal sightlines and practical features, Ultraline is the solution for you.

This system boasts the thinnest frameless glazing and most minimalist aesthetic on the market. It’s perfect for an eco-home because it ensures your home is bathed in natural light and that you’re treated to panoramic views you can enjoy all year round.

As well as being thermally efficient, Ultraline is also a security-obsessive’s dream. Boasting an innovative locking system that instantly turns any property into a ‘smart home’.

Sustainable living in style

Situated in Sissinghurst, deep in the Kent countryside, this property now really stands out. The timber cladding combined with frameless glazing has created a fantastically minimal aesthetic that really suits this luxury modern new build. And thanks to the Grand Designs style glazing, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Kevin McCloud wandering the grounds very soon…
