The owners of the Four Views were interested in a safe solution with high security and thermal performance levels to reduce energy bills and carbon footprint. They approached the architects from AR Design Studio to help them choose the right aluminium sliding doors and windows for their home.
The owners wanted to replace their existing timber windows with something that suited the character of the property, but with a touch of contemporary design elegance. They chose AluK’s 58BW Flush aluminium frames, with an ultra slim 45mm sightline on the sash and 24mm on the frame, primarily because of the aesthetics, but also because of their maintenance-free feature.
In creating their dream home, the owners wanted to reduce the width of the sightlines and increase the glazed area to allow more daylight into their property. Originally designed with PVC-U windows and doors, the homeowners felt the need to upgrade and use a more sustainable material – aluminium.
Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Yellow have been declared as the Pantone Colours of the Year for 2021. One AluK customer near Whitstable was ahead of the curve with this grey and yellow combination of aluminium windows, door and bifold doors, giving a tired 1930s property a smart update.
At AluK, we aim to help all our customers choose the perfect aluminium door and window systems for their home. We recently helped a customer who was completely refurbishing the property, a beautiful semi-detached house in the heart of Greenwich, London.
The artist behind @snowwindows has recreated the exterior of the renovated house in all its ‘snowy glory’ in the three giant AluK 58BW windows which frame the first floor landing.
The property started life as a bungalow but, over the past 18 months, has been transformed into a two-storey home, with the journey from small to spectacular being documented on Instagram (@tardis_bungalow_renovation).
