Westcoast Windows supplied Swedish composite windows for this contemporary award-winning new build in Norfolk.
Westcoast Windows were pleased to supply their windows and doors for this prestigious award-wining new build project, working with Norfolk Pro Build as the main contractors and project architects Chaplin Farrant.
The project involved the demolition of a bungalow and the clever re-siting and building of a new four bedroom home, using contemporary architecture.
The building is a curved design, featuring copper roof panels and rain water guttering, with external walls clad in a combination of copper paneling, lime render and larch boarding.
Westcoast Windows’ Design series triple-glazed composite windows and doors are the obvious choice for a contemporary new build, offering a deeper glass unit creating a minimal step between outer glass and frame for maximum light, a flush finish and simple, elegant lines.For this project the low maintenance aluminium exterior was finished in stylish graphite grey RAL 7016 (30% gloss) and the warm wood interior finished in American White Oak with a clear lacquer to complete the look.
Wild Acres has been awarded the Graham Allen Award 2017 for it’s contribution to the built environment in the Norfolk North District.
It was praised by judges for its intelligent reaction to site context, topography and landscape setting; visual interest portrayed by the curved form; low lying position and shallow pitch ensuring a discreet presence; and sustainable technology including ground source heating.
It also won the People’s Choice Award, which is determined by public vote during the Greenbuild weekend – NNDC’s annual green lifestyle event held in September at Felbrigg Hall.
At the Design & Craftsmanship Awards 2017 Norfolk Association of Architects awarded the President’s Commendation to Wild Acres for it’s “Excellent level of Design and Craftsmanship”.
For multi-storey buildings where cleaning and/or reglazing is to be carried out internally.
The concealed projecting reversible hinge allows the sash to be fully reversed with all the action externally so the operation of the sash never interferes with curtains, blinds or internal fitments.
The easy glide mechanism incorporates integral safety restrictors which automatically engage when opening and when in the fully reversed cleaning position. Concealed multipoint espagnolette locking provides superior closing tightness for weatherproofing and acoustic attenuation and offers a secure night ventilation position.
For residential/light commercial access where doors are to be secured both internally and externally or for emergency exit purposes.
Single leaf doors (FDGL) and the leading leaf of pairs of doors (FDGDL) are secured by a concealed multipoint locking lever/latch espagnolette bolt mechanism with cylinder locks and fitted with lever/lever handles.
Emergency exit doors (FDGLX) are secured and operated by surface mounted panic escape gear.
For residential access purposes to ground floor terrace or upper floor level balcony locations where doors are to be secured principally from within the building.
Single leaf doors (FDG) are secured by a concealed multipoint locking espagnolette bolt mechanism incorporating an integral handle operated friction stay with a variable hold open position up to either 90° or 165°. In the case of pairs of doors (FDGD) the slave leaf is secured with flush bolts as standard or for enhanced security with espagnolette operation.
