Replication 19th Century timber window designs, with modern features and benefits
Residence 9 is a new window system designed to replicate the 19th Century Flush Sash Timber Window.
It is ideal for use in conservation areas due to its authentic appearance. This authentic design is also appealing to any homeowner who wants a top end luxury window brand.
It can accommodate 28mm double or 44mm triple glazing with market leading thermal and acoustic performance and achieved one of the highest classifications on weather test due to its robust design. It is hand finished and made by craftsmen.
A conservation area is an area of specific architectural or historical interest, the character or appearance of which is desirable to preserve or enhance.
Many of your towns, local street scapes rely on historic windows for much of their architectural impact and character. Inappropriate, poor quality replacement windows can easily erode traditional features on historic buildings.
Homeowners should always seek appropriate consent if they live in a conservation area.
Article 4 is when a planning authority applies to restrict development rights in a conservation area. Replacement windows then need planning approval and conservation area consent. This is quite rightly done to preserve architectural merit.
Some planning authorities precluded the use of modern materials because the window designs were inappropriate in size, shape and design. A more modern approach has been to approve the use of Residence 9 because of its consideration of the Article 4 directives. It has been specifically designed to replicate the documented historical window designs from the period.
Made in Britain
Every Residence 9 window is made bespoke to your requirements. You can customise everything including the style, colour and hardware. Every window is different.
A skilled craftsman will manufacture your window, to your sizes and specification. The Residence 9 mechanical joints require finesse and attention and can only be executed with hand finishing by individuals who are masters of their trade.
Only by replacing mass production machinery with craftsmen can you achieve the traditional jointing features which stand Residence 9 apart from the modernmitred alternatives.
The Graduate Collection
19th Century windows were always painted and never stained which is why Residence 9 is only available in a range of traditional colours.
Our most popular colour is grained white, however if the white is too crisp, why not try our "clotted cream" or unique "cotswold biscuit". Other traditional colours are available and for more modern properties there are some very contemporary greys and pastel greens.
