Casement windows and orangery in Dorset

4 Oct 2018
Case study

Westbury Windows & Joinery worked closely with architectural designers on this whole house project. The project’s aim was to give this Dorset family home a lift from its rather drab 1940s look, whilst updating the use of space and making the house more energy efficient.

The designer specified casement windows so Westbury presented a choice of designs with four and six panes, to suit varying window scales. The windows are all double glazed and are manufactured using premium engineered Larch, which is extremely durable and stable, giving a long life.

Finished using a micro-porous water-based paint in ‘Strong Limewash’, we used polished chrome ironmongery to complete the contemporary look.

The homeowner also required a new family room leading from the kitchen and so Westbury Garden Rooms, the sister company of Westbury Windows and Joinery was the obvious choice to complete this project. We devised an orangery design to reflect the style of glazing bar to the new windows and to match them in colour. With the design, build and completion all managed by Westbury, the project adds a harmonious new space to the building.

A striking new solid entrance door was also added to the front of the house, with large French door sets to the rear.

This house has been transformed and the homeowner is delighted with the contemporary look, with draught-proof windows making the property much cosier and more energy efficient, particularly with the addition of a whole new living space provided by the orangery.
