Architectural Bronze is a family-owned and run business, making and selling our unique range of products to discerning clients for over twenty five years. We are sister company to leading conservatory and orangery designers and manufacturers Vale Garden Houses who have been operating more than forty years.
We share a passion for uniqueness and creativity, striving to provide our clients with the finest handmade products and client experience.
With both design offices located in the same building, our two companies share knowledge, expertise and experience in finding bespoke and innovative solutions for even the most unusual situations or requirements.
We work with leading architects in the UK and around the world and are widely recognised for our bespoke manufacturing and our attention to detail. Working with you, we can tailor designs to suit your very specific requirements, regardless of how large or small your project may be.
Following futile searches for a quality slim profile metal window that could be incorporated into a specifically designed glass house to stand in the grounds of an 17th century manor house, a solution presented itself following a trip to a castle that had bronze casement windows which had been in situ for centuries and were ageing beautifully. With our strong engineering background and experience in the design of extrusions, the decision was made to design our own bronze casement window.
It was this slim design of our metal windows that quickly established a market position with a beautiful product that could be incorporated into both ancient buildings and new builds. Early projects include windows for a Landmark Trust Property, Freston Tower, an interesting building that was undergoing extensive, sympathetic renovation. Our bronze windows were chosen, not only because of the quality of the metal window construction, but also for the durability and longevity which would ensure the materials used in the building would perform as required.
The company has come a long way since the early years and now employs around 60 highly skilled and dedicated members of staff in both offices and production.
Our products are sold around the world - with three full shipping containers having been recently sent to two leading universities in Sydney, Australia. Other destinations include the USA and Bermuda where we have been supplying for over 10 years, and extensively across Europe working on some beautiful projects.
On home soil we have been involved with many of the leading universities in Oxford and Cambridge, along with projects for some very high profile clients.
We have a great team spirit and always share the excitement when something notable, unusual or groundbreaking goes into production.
To truly appreciate this beautiful metal and how we craft our products, our bronze should be seen first-hand and we encourage everyone to visit us. Our premises are impressive and we can show you around our showrooms, design studios, factory and locally installed products. Here you will experience every stage of the complex manufacturing and finishing process, visit the departments and meet the dedicated teams involved.
We take pride in offering a personal service to all our customers and are proud that a significant portion of our projects comes from recommendations and repeat business. Your visit will not only demonstrate our commitment to excellence but also provide an immersive experience that showcases the artistry and dedication we put into our work.
