Mumford & Wood - London's Heritage Specialist


Mumford & Wood Ltd
27 Mar 2020
Case study

Over the years, Mumford & Wood has been honoured to be selected by numerous architects, builders and aspirational homeowners across the nation’s capital city as suppliers of authentically styled, new windows and doors.

As London itself has over 25 different conservation areas, along with thousands of buildings spanning various architectural periods, ages and listed statuses, when it comes to the replacement of windows and doors, the specialist knowledge and experience of the Mumford & Wood team is second to none.

The quality of the range has met the strict regulations set out by multiple planning authorities across the city, where the benefits of engineered timber combined with bespoke, period correct designs ensure that new windows perform to a very high standard, whilst being a perfect fit to the buildings they are specified for.

The entire range is made to measure, allowing for greater flexibility and creativity when choosing new windows and doors. On Cloth Street near Barbican station, this made the difference where new entrance doors in a unique blue finish have created an eye-opening entrance to the building. Included in this project was a one-of-a-kind entrance door to the side of the building that was one of the smallest ever specified. You would almost need to get on your knees to get through it!

As well as these new doors, beautiful arched sash windows were installed on the upper floors of a building a short walk away on Long Lane. These were beautiful like-for-like replacements of older sash windows that had reached the end of their life. The new sash windows are a perfect accompaniment to the architecture of the building where their fresh, yet entirely authentic appearance stand out among the neighbouring structures.

Heading west to Fitzrovia, new casement windows and French doors from the Conservation range were specified for the upper floors of 76-78 Mortimer Street. These new, tall windows allow plenty of natural light to flood the office space and apartments that occupy this building, with the French doors on the top floor opening onto private balconies.

Continuing west, for regular visitors to Harry’s Bar on James Street in Marylebone, the pink façade of the building is already an eye-catching feature on the street. To further enhance the beauty and respect the heritage of the building, arched sash windows in White were replaced, perfectly matching the originals while complementing bespoke stonework surrounding the new window openings.

Mumford & Wood’s portfolio of projects in London increases year-on-year and the expertise of the team continues to make the difference in a variety of projects across the capital.

For those living and working in London who wish to see the quality of the range first-hand, Mumford & Wood have a permanent exhibit at The Building Centre on Store Street in Bloomsbury. With a selection of windows and doors on display and detailed product information available, this is the perfect environment for those undertaking a new project or involved in the architectural specification of windows and doors, to experience the product range first-hand. A member of the team can offer advice and the benefit of their expertise, one-on-one, by appointment.
