About The

Residence Collection

The Residence Collection is designed in Gloucestershire at our HQ, then extruded in Wiltshire. We have a network of dedicated fabricators and installers throughout the UK. A British product for British homes.

We designed the original timber alternative window; Residence 9 back in 2011. 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.

The Residence Collection was launched in 2016, with R7 and R² to complete the offering.






Residence 9 was launched as sister company to Window Widgets Limited.


Residence 9 wins Retail Promotional campaign of the Year at the G-Awards – the campaign “Your R9” led the fabricator, installer and homeowner on a journey of the R9 window through video and accompanying marketing materials.


DW3 Products Group made a double acquisition and acquired Residence 9 and Window Widgets.


The Residence Collection was born and also won Timber Alternative Company at the National Fenestration Awards


Masonite International Corporation completed the acquisition of DW3 Products Group Ltd and its subsidiaries, including The Residence Collection and Window Widgets.


Gloucester-based Window Widgets completes management buyout (MBO). Window Widgets (2006) Ltd, which includes The Residence Collection of windows and doors has a been acquired by its UK management team.


Residence Collection HQ becomes “Zero-waste to Landfill” with the ambition to become Carbon Neutral by 2025.


The Residence Collection wins Best Window of the Year at the Build It Awards & Commercial Project of the Year at G22 Awards


The Residence Collection launch 10 new colours and introduce the new Colour Collections.


The Residence Collection becomes ISO 9001 and 140001 accredited





The journey of window doesn’t just start and end with your installer.

The Journey of a window

Step 01

Your Residence Collection journey begins

Your Residence Collection journey begins in the mind of a designer, and that designer is us The Residence Collection. We have designed the window profile taking into consideration thermal, acoustic, security and strength performance.

Step 02

The Fabricator

We then extrude the window profile in 6 metre lengths ready for window fabricators to purchase. The fabricator will then make your window according to your specifications, they are craftsman, and every Residence Collection window is bespoke and handmade. 

In order to make your window the fabricator will order all the components for your window from different suppliers. So we sell them the window profile, they will purchase the glass, locks, hinges etc from other companies. Once they have all the components, they expertly make your Residence Windows and doors.

Step 03

The Installer

Once completed the fabricator will ship your window to your chosen installer, and then arrange for your beautiful new Residence Collection windows and doors to be installed in your home.

Choosing R9 windows was the best thing we ever did. So happy with the finish, they have been in a couple of years now and they are still perfect!

Jody Lees

I must say that our installer carried out a magnificent job installing these windows, which thanks to your company and MWD has greatly improved our home.

Martin & Wendy

We are absolutely over the moon with our R9 windows. It wasn’t an easy decision to replace our old original timber windows. After a lot of research when we discovered The Residence Collection, our decision was made a lot easier.

Joanne & Andrew

They look amazing, now it’s this bright open space – It’s been a game changer.

Mr & Mrs Beadle

I had seen residence windows on Pinterest when planning the look at feel I wanted for our home. When it came to choosing ours I referred back to the images I’d saved and they all seemed to be Residence! I loved the clean lines of flush windows. It helped that I knew friends that had also used Residence windows and were impressed with the quality and design.


We needed to ensure they were as energy efficient as possible and would also suit the country aesthetic of the village we live in, and they combine the two perfectly. We have had lots of compliments on the windows!

Hazel Morris

The window and French doors look beautiful, but due to its size it has always been a major source of heat loss. The improvement in the warmth of the drawing room and indeed the whole house is amazing!
