Timber windows from Mumford & Wood in 'A House for Essex'

Timber windows from Mumford & Wood in 'A House for Essex'

Traditional timber sliding sash windows, casements and French doorsets from the Conservation™ range by Mumford & Wood have been specified in A House for Essex as part of Alain de Botton’s series of rentable holiday homes. In this daring and provocative collaboration between FAT Architecture, the award-wining practice with an international reputation for delivering outstanding projects, and leading contemporary artist Chelmsford-born Grayson Perry, this iconic building has been described by some as a ceramic-clad gingerbread temple in Essex.

The made-to-order timber Conservation™ products feature Victorian-style sash windows, with spring balance operation, which are adorned with fixed curved semi-circular fanlights to emphasise height and magnitude.

Coordinating Conservation™ casement windows and doors feature a contemporary-style moulding. All products have been finished in purple red, RAL 3004, with a single doorset supplied in yellow. Triangular casements were also designed and manufactured by Mumford & Wood. The sliding sash windows are positioned in the gold roof, in pairs of diminishing size, running from front to back of the house.
