Woodbrook Place, Cheshire
Woodbrook Place, Cheshire
In this project, Glass & Stainless were tasked with transforming a period property using eye-catching architectural glass features.
Located in a conservation area of the village, Woodbrook Place is a large private residential home. Glass & Stainless were asked to inject new life into all of the glass windows and glass doors on the property, as there were only limited views to the extensive grounds.
Making sure that all the doors worked to allow easy movement between the spaces was important. The Aluminium Smarts systems heritage glass doors were fitted to ensure the maximum transparency and freedom of movement. This can be seen through the courtyard spaces and is reflected in the doors at the rear of the property.
Glass & Stainless worked carefully to promote harmony between the home’s internal and external spaces, letting the outside in and the inside out. PPC Aluminium senior systems windows were fitted with bifold doors as well as Aluminium Smarts systems heritage double doors and single doors. Glass & Stainless added in glass Juliet balconies, with matching powder coated 316 grade stainless steel adaptors supporting 21.52mm toughened laminated clear glass, to complete the exterior.
The property has an existing architectural feel that was preserved through the windows and glass doors, the substance of the design was protected in the choice of product. The rear elevation of the property was enhanced by a careful selection of matching glass windows throughout. Large openings to the perfect courtyard and garden space for the client to enjoy a summer afternoon were important in the brief and Glass & Stainless certainly achieved that.
Glass & Stainless fitted Juliet balconies with matching powder coated 316 grade stainless steel adaptors and 21.52mm toughened laminated glass, to make sure they could withstand the British winters without a compromise in quality.
The Final Result:
Glass & Stainless worked closely to understand the needs of the client in the early stages of the design. Carefully understanding the priorities through the design allowed Glass & Stainless to provide the client with a specific look and feel. The result is an elegant finish that echoes the language of the architecture.
The new glass windows and doors from Glass & Stainless have completely transformed both the internal and external spaces. From the moment you enter the grounds of the property, you are met with an open entrance way. This high quality finish is continued around the building to fit in with the existing structure but offers a new feel for the client. The doors offer a new type of interaction between the courtyards and gardens by opening up both the entrances and views.
The Materials Used:
When it came to creating the glass Juliet balconies, Glass & Stainless used matching powder coated 316 grade stainless steel adaptors and 21.52mm toughened laminated clear glass. Externally, these stainless steel 316 grade products were powder coated Ral 7016 matt (anthracite) to match the windows and doors. Powder coating was used to improve the metal’s durability and resistance; to be a major benefit when the structure in question will be exposed to a variety of weather conditions.
