DEVELOPMENT OF A BEAUTIFUL NORFOLK FARM HOUSE PROVES
THAT SWEDISH COMPOSITE WINDOWS AND SLIDING DOORS ARE
SUITABLE FOR BOTH TRADITIONAL PERIOD PROPERTIES AND
CONTEMPORARY NEW BUILDS
Westcoast Windows distributor partner, Aluminium Clad Windows by
TWN, were pleased to supply the windows and doors for this combined
renovated farm house with new linked ‘barn’ addition.
TWN worked closely with the client and Wymondham based architects,
Lucas Hickman Smith, to specify suitable windows for the development.
The original near derelict Georgian farm house had its two ground floor
windows lengthened to allow maximum light into the reception room and
study – these were fitted with bespoke composite triple-glazed fixed light
windows with glazing bars to match the first floor sash windows.

CONTEMPORARY AND TRADITIONAL DEVELOPMENTS

SLIDING DOORS BRING THE OUTSIDE IN
TWN commissioned the three bespoke timber sliding sash windows
for the first floor and both sets of windows were finished in the same
bespoke heritage style Pebble grey colour, sympathetic to the painted
cream exterior.
The side elevation of the farmhouse was fitted with composite tripleglazed windows finished in the stylish dark grey RAL 7012, to carry
through to the new linked ‘barn’ addition. The new two story addition
was built to take advantage of the location – on one side an elevated
sitting room with 6 metre composite sliding doors opens out onto a
balcony with long views over open farmland and the Norfolk broads in
the distance. The ground floor open plan kitchen and dining room was
fitted with Westcoast Windows composite Lift & Slide doors to open
onto the outside patio and garden. The upper floor master bedroom
has matching glazing with Tilt & Slide Doors.
The warm wood interior of the composite windows and doors was
finished in two different styles, with a white stain effect on the
new ‘barn’ addition windows and doors and a Pine lacquer on the
period building.
The client was delighted with the Westcoast Windows products,
service and fitting provided by Rob and the team at Aluminium
Clad Windows by TWN, particularly the triple-glazing which
enhances the insulation of the house.
“TWN Ali-Clad made the whole process
easy for us and delivered a fabulous
result to the house”.

The Westcoast Windows Design series has been developed with
contemporary architecture in mind, with a deeper glass unit to
create a minimal step between outer glass and frame for maximum
light, a flush finish and elegant lines.
The Design series contemporary composite windows and doors
are available in a wide range of fixed windows, open out windows,
open out doors and sliding doors and offer a U-value of 1.0 W/m2k
for opening and 0.9 W/m2k for fixed windows. Take a look at the full
