Heritage windows with traditional leaded lights.ARCHITECT / CONTRACTOR
Client lead with Daedalus ConservationABOUT PROJECT
This Grade 1 listed sprawling Elizabethan manor house has commanding views over the Weald and Sussex Downs. The house was built in 1569 from local flint, chalk and Caen stone to replace the previous existing family home and has remained within the same family since.
Daedalus Conservation carried out all the stone repairs in the renovation of this beautiful building and Architectural Bronze worked on the casements and glazing for around 200 individual windows using our Heritage system.
The old steel casements had caused considerable damage to the stone mullions and the decorative panels of stained glass had seriously deteriorated. Our works started with painstakingly removing the old windows and glass. Each decorative panel was assessed as to what could be repaired and what needed to be replaced.
Along with the coloured panels, Heritage casements were also fitted with plain kiln distorted glass and traditional leaded lights with saddle bars.
The images at the bottom of this case study illustrate the building before and during renovation, and the process in restoring beautiful glazed works of art.RETURN TO ALL CASE STUDIES
