We have recently installed slimline aluminium windows and doors for two new build properties in Reading, Berkshire.
We were delighted when Bentier, a local building company specialising in luxury homes, approached us for an architectural glazing solution to a new development of two luxury five-bedroom family homes.
The new development is nestled in a rural village of Tokers Green near South Oxfordshire and only four miles from the bustling town of Reading. Each property is set within an ½ an acre plot.
Paul Mills, our senior design manager, worked seamlessly with both the base contractor Bentier and clients property management team Pinnacle from the initial consultation, through to design and installation.
The brief was a complete contemporary glazing solution to both Reading properties including large glass panel double glazed windows, sliding doors, patio doors and front entrance doors.
Key to the overall project was minimalist glazing design in all products for an impressive aesthetics and to maximise natural light into the properties while creating the illusion of space and providing expansive, uninterrupted views.
As part of our architectural design service, we created full-colour 3D visuals of the proposed aluminium windows and doors in Reading which helped the clients to envisage the finished design.
Paul has extensive knowledge and innovative design experience of working on sizeable architectural glazing projects, as well as residential houses and new build projects to create homes full of light and style.
Both Paul and the team at Thames Valley Windows have a clear understanding and insight into the architectural glazing requirements of new builds for quality materials, high standard workmanship and a specialised installation team to ensure the results are impressive and stunning.
With aluminium windows and doors being a prominent feature in the design of the Reading properties, Paul chose premium performing products that are high quality, weather-resistant, energy-efficient with the best thermal performance and virtually maintenance-free.
In total 25 contemporary double glazed aluminium windows with slim sightlines in a range of different configurations whether fixed or opening with the most secure locking systems, were installed throughout each Reading property maximising daylight into each room and uninterrupted views.
Large glazed units with premium anthracite grey aluminium frames, including ultra-slim aluminium doors of sliding doors and patio doors, are distinctive features in the facades of the properties.
The project has been carried out in two stages, and the day our photographer was on-site, our installation team were installing a contemporary Pirnar entrance door with sidelights.
