High performance, made-to-order timber sash windows and doors from the Kensington & Chelsea range by Lomax + Wood have been architecturally specified for a substantial private new-build home in Surrey.
Providing in excess of 6,000 sq ft of beautifully designed open plan interior space the property, on the edge of Walton village, is one of two individually designed neighbouring new-build homes. The site had previously accommodated just one mature property but the large site has been divided equally providing generous plots for each.
Energy efficient double glazed Kensington & Chelsea spring balance sash windows in single, double and triple-linked configurations has ensured this family home is full of natural light. These authentic period windows have elegant 20mm wide ovolo glazing bars that maintain historical sight lines while self-engaging top sash locks and restrictors ensure security and peace of mind. A series of coordinating three-leaf bi-folding doors to the ground floor rear elevation provide easy access to the terrace and garden leading off a large formal reception room and a versatile kitchen-cum-diner and day room, a favourite space for all the family.
“While this newbuild property achieves a traditional symmetry and appearance, with lavish use of handmade bricks, brickwork in relief, detailed solider courses above openings and natural stone cills, the exterior design belies the contemporary, open plan aesthetics of the ground floor accommodation,” says Chris Wood, managing director, Lomax + Wood. “From the minstrel-style galleried landing to the wide, show-piece central staircase, this stunning property combines traditional and contemporary design elements that together achieve tremendous Wow! factor.”
The comprehensive Kensington & Chelsea range includes a variety of door types including entrance doors, French doorsets and bi-folding doors as well as single side access doors, either solid, glazed or partly glazed.
The oversize timber entrance door for this property was specially designed by Lomax + Wood and features horizontal timber panels that lend a contemporary tone, flanked either side with full height fixed glazed panels to allow maximum light to enter the vast hall and stairwell. All Kensington & Chelsea doors feature Heritage Locking System ironmongery which has been independently tested to meet the highest standards of security. This entrance door has been finished with high quality chrome ironmongery as standard and alternative styles and finishes can be selected as an optional extra.
Lomax + Wood excel in providing a full suite of coordinated products, of exceptional quality, that provide high thermal and acoustic performance. The company uses only clear-grade, sustainably sourced timber in its manufacturing processes which is engineered for strength and stability. All products are internally glazed for improved aesthetics and security and, unlike mass produced timber windows and doors, Lomax + Wood do not use Swedish grooves on joints. These are considered detrimental to the aesthetics of traditionally styled windows and doors and require a higher level of maintenance.
Products are delivered to site factory-finished with three coats of high quality, durable micro-porous paint or stain which is available in a choice of white and fashionable heritage colours, or in a dual colour facility.
