Case Study: Private Residence – West Sussex
Project Synopsis: Wonderful country home meticulously refurbished from top to bottom...
Nestled in the West Sussex countryside lies this striking family home. The new owners purchased the property in a poor state of repair with plans to refurbish, reconfigure and extend the building. Their brief was to retain all the original character and charm of the original house, using locally sourced materials where possible. These included reclaimed bricks, roof tiles and local Fittleworth stone.
Clement EB24 steel windows with leaded lights were chosen to replace the original metal windows. The 9mm oval leads are applied to the inside and the outside of the outer pane and feature a hand crafted soldered joint. This provides an almost identical match but with the added advantage of improved thermal efficiency and security.
Paulo Espírito Santo, Founding Partner at Espirito Santo Architects said: "When choosing the right windows for this beautiful house it was important that they would both be in keeping with the character of the building and provide better thermal qualities. We think the new Clement steel windows have done exactly that. They finish off the project perfectly. Our clients are absolutely delighted with the new steel windows and we felt they offered us excellent value for money."
