Congratulations to the Crittall House of the Year Award runners up with this stunning renovation of their East London Edwardian home.
The owners carried out extensive online research before they started work on their dream project to create a light filled area using a steel structure. They chose Crittall as the only manufacturer able to create their bespoke design without having to use a steel beam above the double sets of opening doors to achieve the aesthetic look they required.
A key element for the owners was to achieve a perfectly symmetrical look inside and out, with slim profiles throughout the external wall of glazing allowing a perfectly framed view to the beautiful garden beyond, throughout the year. Bespoke hardware adds an accent to match the kitchen ironmongery while complementing the London yellow stock brickwork on the exterior.
The owners felt their design was brave but they would be in good hands with Crittall based on the company’s tradition, knowledge and experience in manufacturing. The shape of the installation was also an important factor to achieve. ‘The Crittall doors allow us to have a timeless design combining a classic exterior with a modern interior demonstrating the design’s versatility and its ability to fundamentally transform the space we live in every day. We are grateful for the team at Bespoke Glazing Design for their excellent cooperation to make this installation come true’
Two sets of double leaf doors were chosen to open up to the outside area which, when an architect friend visited and saw the doors, commented ‘you live in Hollywood!’ The installation provides a real wow factor when entering the house which the owner says ‘makes his day when he returns home to see the effect of the Crittall installation’.
