Replicate 19th Century Timber Window Designs With Modern Features And Benefits
The design brief for Residence 9 was to extract the key principles, shapes and dimensions from the Article 4 Conservation Area guidelines for windows, and integrate market leading technology into the design using virtually maintenance free materials. Residence 9 is thermally and acoustically brilliant. It features the latest security, maintenance and performance innovations, whilst appearing traditional. Your windows and doors won't warp, swell, flake or need sanding and painting.
Authenticity & Energy Efficiency
Residence 9 has 9 chambers and is 100mm wide, resulting in superior thermal, acoustic, strength and security performance. It achieves a certified window energy A+ rating and accommodates the most thermally and acoustically efficient 44mm triple glazing and 28mm double glazing. Attaining U-values of 0.8 with triple glazing, PassivHaus Standard, and 1.2 with double glazing far surpassing the British Building Regulation requirements. All of this contributes to lower energy bills, keeping you cosy in the winter and cool in the summer.

In the early 19th Century these distinctive circular buildings with conical roofs appeared across the country in response to the increased demand for beer! This beautiful British building was brought back to its former glory and converted to a residential property. Residence 9 was specified which restored the period detail required due to its authentic 19th Century timber aesthetics.
