Listed Building Sash Windows, London

 

Case Study

Snee Mid Victorian London Family Home


The house is a mid-Victorian terrace, most likely built for a well to do merchant. Rare for house in London much of the Victorian detail in the cornicing, architraves and fireplaces were untouched and just need gentle restoration. Much of this decoration is typically exuberant reflecting the fashions of the 1850s.

Case Study Details


Once the family made the decision to move the kitchen from the existing dark room into a new orangery, they needed to find a conservatory company whose joinery would enhance the beautiful kitchen.

After the family interviewed several companies, Hamptons was their choice for their traditional detailing and quality of workmanship.

“We thought Hamptons offered the best product which fitted with the house both in terms of quality and look for the age and build period of the house, and enduring, energy efficient, modern materials. So that meant double glazing throughout, with aged brass fittings to sit with the restored Victorian detail. Our interior designer worked closely with Hamptons design team to articulate our joint vision. As they say “the devil is in the detail” and Hamptons really strived to ensure all aspects of design and build were of highest quality.

They started out commissioning only the conservatory, but decided they wanted Hamptons to copy and replace new all our windows and even our front door. As they are within a Conservation area and working with council planners, we needed to be happy to copy exactly the existing windows. We also took the opportunity to match the front door and entire door frame with the attached neighbouring house. A huge improvement to the frontage, and Nicola tells us that it has drawn many compliments from our neighbours at the restoration.

Having committed to the orangery the family felt it would be a shame not to replace the old sash windows. We used our Hamptons double glazed windows with the thinest glazing bars which not only copied the original windows but allowed them to be opened so much easier using the weightless sliding mechanism.

The project was managed and completed within a very tight timescale which allowed the family to move into their beautiful home on time.
