Casement Windows and Orangery with Roof Lantern in Dorset
We worked closely with architectural designers on this whole house project. The project’s aim was to give this Dorset family home a lift from its tired 1940s look, whilst updating the use of space and making the house more energy-efficient.
The designer specified casement windows so Westbury presented a choice of designs with four and six panes, to suit varying window scales. The windows are all double glazed and are manufactured using premium engineered timber, which is extremely durable and stable, giving long life.
Finished using micro-porous water-based paint in ‘Strong Limewash’, we used polished chrome ironmongery to complete the contemporary look.
The homeowner also required a new family room leading from the kitchen and so Westbury Garden Rooms, the sister company of Westbury Windows and Joinery was the obvious choice to complete this project. We devised an orangery design with a large timber roof lantern to reflect the style of the glazing bar to the new windows and to match them in colour. With the design, build and completion all managed by Westbury, the project adds a harmonious new space to the building.
A striking new solid entrance door was also added to the front of the house, with large French door sets to the rear.
This house has been transformed and the homeowner is delighted with the contemporary look, with draught-proof windows making the property much cosier and more energy-efficient, particularly with the addition of a whole new living space provided by the high-end orangery, by our sister company Westbury Garden Rooms.
All the windows and doors have now been installed....they look brilliant by the way, we are so pleased with them! ”Mrs N
