Case Study: Private Residence - Surrey
Project Synopsis: Groundbreaking Modernist house updated with new Clement windows and doors
This stunning Grade II* Surrey property was built in 1932 by renowned architects Connell, Ward and Lucas and is a rare example of the Modernist Movement in architecture.
Described at the time as ‘more like an invention by Picasso than a house’ the building was revolutionary for its time and divided opinion. Built using reinforced concrete with a flat roof it is designed to prioritise light and space.
The windows are key to the original concept which is based on the movement of the sun in the morning the breakfast room gets the early sun and the living room benefits from the light in the late afternoon.
Windows from the Clement EB20 range were manufactured and polyester powder coated in a matt Pastel Blue. The Clement EB20 steel doors include Clement’s multi-point locking door system which can achieve PAS4:2016 in accordance with approved Document Q.
