Slimline aluminium windows transform 1930s home
This was a bespoke glazing project for a 1930s detached house located in the heart of bustling, trendy Mumbles with views over sweeping Swansea Bay. It was in desperate need of more light and flow between its living spaces and gorgeous south-facing gardens. The original curved bay windows had long gone and in their place heavy old-school PVC frames obscured much of the view.
The renovation and extension have made these windows a real feature again, with full height bays on the ground floor, a new kitchen-dining extension with floor to ceiling glass doors, and expansive five panel bay windows for the first floor bedrooms. The distinctive bay windows, finished in Anthracite inside and out, are set in bespoke leadwork cladding. Inside, a muted and subtle paint palette, richly coloured textiles, bespoke oak joinery and flooring all celebrate its period heritage.
Throughout ODC75 high performance slimline aluminium windows maximise light and sightlines. These sleek, contemporary windows have highest level of weather performance for water tightness, air permeability and wind resistance – this coastal location has its fair share of weather!
ODC320 sliding doors to the garden have minimal frame profiles for maximum light and outlook from the contemporary open plan kitchen-dining area. Matching fully glazed aluminium single doors create discreet side access to the outside from the living room bay window.
This house is now a vibrant and contemporary family home with dramatic spaces which connect strongly with its immediate and wider location.
