When our clients saw the stunning views of the Welsh mountains, they knew this single story bungalow was the perfect project that would become their future forever home. Once purchased and with a vision in their mind's eye, they completely redesigned and developed the property, adding an extra floor, glass viewing gallery and pod, balcony and a number of other alterations to bring their dreams to reality.
A priority for our client was to maximise on the extensive and far reaching views, so they ensured that the design featured lots of expansive glazing in order to achieve this. They also wanted to ensure that the glazing was extremely high performing as it was also important to them that we improve the overall energy efficiency of the home. The vast majority of the windows and doors throughout the house are triple glazed aluminium clad timber from Internorm, who have an excellent reputation for both build quality and market leading U-values, a great choice for both new build and refurbishment projects when looking for great energy efficiency. The alu-clad timber windows offer a soft, homely finish to the interior and a hard wearing and low maintenance aluminium cladding to the exterior, which complements this unique home perfectly.
Two exceptional features of this home are the glass viewing pod with balcony and the large aluminium viewing gallery down the side of the property. The glass viewing gallery was created using our bespoke aluminium roof light system, whilst the glass pod is constructed entirely from Internorm windows. Both of these features offer incredible expansive views of the River Dee and North Wales landscape all day long, ensuring our client can enjoy the sunrise from the viewing gallery and sunset from the balcony for many years to come.
