Conservation™ timber windows and doors by Mumford & Wood have been specified by Thomas Croft Architects, London W10, for a new build private home on the idyllic north Norfolk coast. The property has been designed in traditional style reflecting the local vernacular of the area with the use of flint, local red brick and clay pantiles.
A combination of double glazed Conservation™ Georgian-style timber sash windows teamed with coordinating casement windows and French doorsets at ground and first floor levels have been installed into deep reveals to aid protection and shelter from the elements and to accommodate external sea-defence steel panels.
The front façade, featuring Conservation™ box sash windows operated by traditional cords and weights, is designed with a friendly, familiar appeal similar to the neighbouring fisherman and workers cottages but on a far grander and larger scale.
Contractor Dave Smith of R. M. Smith (Builders) Limited, Brancaster, Norfolk, a family owned building firm, comments: "The windows and doors were great to install and their quality is the perfect match for this retreat.”
