Advanced bronze windows with leaded glassARCHITECT / CONTRACTOR
Amos Group LtdABOUT PROJECT
This beautiful country house was designed in an Arts and Crafts style with neo-Jacobean detailing using red brick, terracotta, stonework, high quality joinery and ironwork. In the late 20th Century the building was converted into seven apartments and the stable block replaced with a large garage and storage building. In 2019 work began on restoring this property to its former glory, turning the apartments into a family home again along with a new extensive garage block and orangery.
Architectural Bronze Casements were invited to join the project alongside other master craftsmen, and provided over four hundred windows and doors.
Framed by expertly hand-crafted sandstone mullions, the majority of the bronze windows have a complex traditional rectangular leadlight design to complement the Jacobean inspired architectural details. These windows are painstakingly created with applied lead, a perfect like-for-like of historical windows but with the advantage of being double glazed.
The elaborate bronze back plates on the window locks were handmade as an exact replica of those already featured in the building, highlighting the importance of bronze casements and fittings as a tool for sympathetic restoration projects.RETURN TO ALL CASE STUDIES
