SASH WINDOW CONSERVATION

SASH WINDOW CONSERVATION

Special Project – Jamie Oliver HQ.  Regents Canal, Kings Cross


Case Study

 
For David Morley Architects & Bam Construction (Main Contractor) – Sash windows were able to provide a unique solution to this historic Canal building at Kings Cross

 
Problem

To provide an effective window solution where space for future cleaning and maintenance was extremely limited due to proximity of the canal whilst retaining the authenticity and aesthetics of the original industrial design.

 
Solutions

ACCOYA was selected for the windows and frames (This material has a very long maintenance/paint cycle of 15 years plus) The rear windows were manufactured as a bespoke design of a combination sliding sash and casement window system which gave the appearance of a traditional sash window with the benefit of the easy access for cleaning the window from the INSIDE of the building. This solution will continually save costs over many years of the project life as well as keeping the original facade design. 

Both the front & Rear of the building also benefited from the Coolight 6mm/16/4 double glazed high solar control glass.

London’s historic Alexandra Palace has celebrated the reopening of its East Court and Theatre following a £27m restoration project. The Theatre and East Court officially reopened on 1st December 2018 with a series of events following the completion of the three-year East Wing Restoration Project. The East Wing’s reopening heralds a new chapter for Alexandra Palace, creating new ways for the public to interact with the building and its unique history.

The refurbishment of the Theatre formed a central part of the East Wing Restoration Project. Led by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the design captures the Theatre in a beautiful state of ‘arrested decay’ – its faded grandeur preserved for a new generation of theatre-goers.

Completed by Japanese architect Atsumasa Tamura, Oukikyo was a stunning house renovation inspired by a single painting.

The brief for the project was initially born out of the client’s desire for private space to admire a stunning Japanese style painting featuring an exquisite weeping cherry tree in blossom lit by the moon light. This quickly evolved into an idea that the painting should form the centre of the whole house, not just a single room... read more
