Laurel House, Wadhurst, East Sussex
Mr & Mrs Curran purchased Laurel House in 2011 with the vision of creating their ideal family home. Although the house already had a good number of bedrooms, they wanted to change the positon of the kitchen and increase the ground floor space to suit their needs.
The couple decided to extend the property to create a larger living space and commissioned an architect to design a plan to increase ground floor space by 1,100 sq ft. The extension has completely transformed the property and new bespoke windows were needed for the new space.
The couple were working with contractor, CTS, based in Goudhurst, Kent who had worked with Bereco on a number of previous projects and took comfort in the recommendation that they would provide high quality, high performance joinery products.
Windows and doors were supplied by Parker Joinery who have 14 years experience of working with Bereco. The project was made up of bespoke arched topped flush casement windows, curved bay windows with curved cills and Entrance Doors from the Traditional Range to perfectly suit to the couples design specification.
“The windows are of the highest quality and provide modern insulation whilst still retaining a traditional appearance.”
Bespoke curved feature fanlights with a unique, antique black sunburst lead design are a consistent design feature throughout.
It was very important that the windows would complement the couples design vision of creating a Georgian Orangery appearance which included a significant amount of stone work and period detailing .The curved design of the building meant it was essential to use a wooden window supplier that could supply made to measure curved bay windows with matching curved cill detail.
The windows needed to remain in-keeping with the period style of the property combined with the very latest modern performance features and energy efficiency.
