To replace all 4th floor flat windows which were completely rotten and impossible to open. Client also wanted to change window design to return to sash window styling sympathetic to a conservation area.
Extensive discussions with local planners eventually provided planning permission for traditional style window. Bespoke sash window manufacturers un-phased by climbing four flights of stairs were sourced and appointed. Scaffold licences were issued and windows were installed. At the same time extensive roof damage was identified and subsequently repairs were completed. Once the lovely double-glazed, draught-proofed windows were installed, wood slat venetian blinds were commissioned as window treatments.
A combination of neutral coloured fabrics, wood finishes and traditionally styled window treatments throughout created the light, traditional, practical home far exceeding the family’s expectations.
Access to fresh air, traditional window design far exceeded the family’s expectations and the apartment evolved from a Dad’s occasional London bolt-hole to a regularly enjoyed family venue.
