Gebler ToothABOUT PROJECT
This country house in the Home Counties is a perfect example of a tasteful refurbishment combining traditional and modern sensibilities.
Set in 55 acres, parts of an original house on the site were incorporated into the existing building, with the new layout including two new double storey extensions. The Architect’s concept was to rebalance the symmetry of the two gables by adding a third, albeit more reserved two-storey extension.
Approximately 100 Bronze windows and doors were used throughout this property.
Towering cathedralesque walls of glass framed by stone mullions have a hint of the gothic as they come to lancet style points, echoing the pitches of the gables. Windows are kept simple with a minimal amount of glaze bars intersecting glass panes, in order to maintain the fresh, sleek and modern design. Architectural Bronze Casements manage to add a touch of the theatrical to this otherwise pared back structure.RETURN TO ALL CASE STUDIES
