Located on a hill, with panoramic views over Box Valley, this beautiful self-build home replaced an existing 1960s bungalow. In order to be granted planning permission, they had to design and build a sustainable, low energy, single storey newbuild. To achieve this, they opted for thermally efficient, triple glazed timber-aluminium composite windows and doors from Internorm, combined with natural external timber cladding to the exterior. Internorm partner Thames Valley Window Company worked closely with CaSA Architects and the client to meet their requirements, make the new build sustainable, maximise the views and create a light-filled home.
Internorm Products Used in this Selfbuild:
- HF 410 Timber-aluminium windows and doors, design style Studio
- HS330 Lift & Slide Doors with glass to glass corners
- Colours used: Anthracite Grey HM716 externally, Spruce F510 internally
The homeowners opted for a combination of composite timber-aluminium tilt & turn and fixed windows and chose the popular powder-coated aluminium RAL 7016 anthracite grey for the exterior and Spruce (FI510) interior timber to add a touch of natural elegance and character to the property.
Internorm HF410 timber-aluminium composite windows are the obvious choice for a contemporary new build. Triple glazed as standard, offering an 85mm construction depth, allowing a minimal step between exterior glass and frame to provide a stylish square-edged flush sash finish with no visible hardware for maximum light and simple, elegant lines. Internorm windows can be half or fully rendered, making them appear virtually frameless.
With U-values as low as 0.65 W(m²K) and sound reduction as high as 45 dB, the HF410 exceeded their demands for thermal and acoustic performance.
Large Glazing for Natural Light
Whether you are building a new home or extending an existing one, sliding doors can be transformative. The HS330 lift & slide doors and glass-to-glass corners in this property open the home and let natural light flood the interior living spaces.
Internorm lift & slide doors with low threshold do not just look stunning and provide excellent security, their thermal performance and build quality equals that of the matching windows. They allow a seamless transition between the home, the garden and patio area of this sustainable building. Large opening sashes provide free movement between the interior and exterior.
