Perla Windows Ltd
We were approached by this client who wanted to bring as much light as possible into their Victorian home renovation. The result was the installation of floor to ceiling internal steel partitions to the central home office which allowed light to floor through the whole of the ground floor. The external sliding doors used were made from our slimline system which has minimal sight-lines and incorporates high performance glass. These were used on the upper floors also as windows.
A Victorian semi-detached house with a large entrance hall leading to a spacious kitchen, dining area and family room to the rear and a formal sitting room and TV room at the front and centre. The upper floors house five bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The design-savvy owners of a fashionable London shoe boutique, which we’d refurbished, appointed us to work on their home. They wanted to inject it with character and warmth, and although initially reluctant to make structural changes, reconsidered. The inspiration was modern and trendy Scandinavian style: what strikes you immediately are the views – the uninterrupted view from room to room through the depth of the building as well as those across to the stunning garden.
In a small corner of a very large open-space, a secondary and more welcoming sitting area invites us to relax and socialise without the distraction of a TV, which is in a different part of the room. Though this room is in the lower-ground level of the home, proximity to terrace doors leading outside as well as two roof lights directly above it, make this the brightest corner of the entire room.
