Agate Grey Composite Door Installation

Aluminium Windows and Doors  

Having worked with us on prior projects. The owners of this fantastic home came to us to supply a full set of windows and doors for their re-development. Our clients worked with local architects NC Architecture. They wanted their new property to have lots of natural light. NC Architecture did a fantastic job with the brief. They re-designed the family home with much more glass than it had before.

The glazing scheme throughout the property has added lots of light. It was also designed as a key element in the building's design, and adds the wow factor. A special area to note is the entrance. It has a pitched dual-height curtain walling system. The entrance door is also made of glass. This entrance sets the stage for what is to follow. This includes the custom-made steel mesh balustrade.

To the rear of the property we installed many of our Knight Line sliding doors. They have a 20mm mullion giving increased light flow. The largest set of sliding doors have a pocket door system. The doors' opening leaf's tuck into the walls when open, leaving a completely open space. We used oversized windows and aluminium french doors instead of standard windows in many areas of the home. Doing so has brought more light in and create a greater feeling of space achieving the client brief. Having visited other window companies, John Knight Glass where favoured because of the wide range of product and slim aluminium frames on offer.

Above the single story extension is a large decking area. It features one of our walk on roof lights. It allows light into the corridor below, enabling use of the area above. The roof light adds function. It also creates architectural interest. Seeing people walk above you through glass is quite the spectacle. Looking up above at night to see the stars is also quite the view when walking through the corridor. Throughout this build, the architects curated a strong indoor/outdoor connection.

The rear garden has a flush floor level even with the house. We have installed several sets of sliding doors with a flush floor cill. The cill is sunken into the ground. Tiling is on either side. This completely breaks down the indoor/outdoor barrier. Making for the perfect flow between areas perfect for enjoying the garden year-round. The garden is very private from the front and rear. So, using the outside areas well was critical.

We also installed two large Crittall screens. Creating a corridor between the wine room and office area. The Crittall screens frame the roof light above. The Crittall screen creates separation of spaces. It still allows light from the roof light and surrounding areas to flow. This build has considered the flow of light in all aspects, as shown by again with the Crittall corridor.

The final result is a fantastic family home that will server the homeowners for many years to come. The new windows and doors improved the home. They make the living spaces better and more efficient.
