SWEDISH COMPOSITE WINDOWS STAND THE TEST OF TIME FOR AN AUSTRALIAN SUSTAINABLE FAMILY HOME
Ten years ago Westcoast supplied our Swedish manufactured composite windows for a new sustainable home in Australia.
Designed by architects PIDCOCK, based in Sydney, the challenge was to design a beautiful sustainable family home that connects the inside living with the beautiful external environment.
The house isn’t connected to the town water or sewerage, so aims to provide as much energy as it uses to be virtually autonomous. This is achieved by creating an extremely energy and water efficient house that is very comfortable to live in.
The home was designed to sit carefully into the hillside, using sustainable materials to help deliver a naturally comfortable thermal environment throughout the year.
Essential to these requirements was the selection of Westcoast Windows high performance aluminium timber composite windows to achieve exceptional energy efficiency and weathertightness whilst providing good natural light and views out onto the beautiful location.
The project was specified with double-glazed Westcoast Classic Series, utilising the popular TSG45 Top Hung Projecting Window to be fitted with an automatic opening system, FKG Fixed Lights including some with a double raked head, SDA Lift and Slide doors and SDC Bi-parting Lift and Slide doors.
The external aluminium was finished in the stylish RAL 7023 Concrete Grey and the interior was finished in white for a clean, contemporary finish.
Take a look at the different windows, styles and finishes in our STYLES & OPTIONS page.
“The windows and sliding doors have performed really well and have contributed to the house maintaining a remarkably comfortable internal temperature during both summer (45ºc outside) and winter (0ºc outside).”
