Window Collection  R2, R7, R8 & R9

Our Residence Collection is a premium window system designed to replicate the 19th Century Flush Sash Timber Window. It can be considered 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.

The perfectly flush exterior recreates a true timber alternative aesthetic, whilst the interior is stylishly decorative, creating a classic home feel. The modern material is virtually maintenance free; no painting or staining required. Cleaning your windows needs minimum effort meaning they look newer for longer, leaving you time to do more of the things you love.

Our Residence collection of windows outperform many other window systems due to the combination of sophisticated design, innovation and technological advancements. You can choose from highly efficient double or triple glazed units, 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 off this contributes to lower energy bills, keeping you cosy in the winter and cool in the summer.

Our Residence Collection of windows are designed to suit properties from old to new and you can create them entirely to your own taste or to suit your property. We offer a huge variety of colours, hardware options, and features such as Georgian Bar and butt hinges, that will make your Residence windows completely unique and add a touch of elegance to your home.

Door Collection

The range of our Residence doors are the start of your journey towards your dream home, providing you with the opportunity to immediately impress and show you have a devotion to design and a passion for aesthetics.

Using the Residence system you are able to create stunning front doors, single and French doors that are in harmony with each other, allowing you to maintain a consistent design throughout your home.

First impressions can be the most important. Residence doors are packed with technical features such as exclusive high security hardware and energy saving high thermal insulation values, coupled with beautiful unique colours and elegant features. These are just some of the reasons why you should choose one of our Residence doors.

With Residence it is possible to create a variety of different door styles. The 9 chamber design has superior thermal properties and with generous maximum sizes this allows for grand and tall elegant entrance screens. The Residence 9 system accommodates a 62mm door panel to perfectly replicate a traditional timber entrance, but is a virtually maintenance free modern alternative.

The Radlington cill is perfect for the replacement door market or any new build project. It is a modern interpretation of a traditional timber cill, with similar dimensions and aesthetically a superior upgrade from slimmer less traditional cills.

 

Orangery Collection

Some homes demand more than a traditional conservatory. Residence bespoke orangeries are the sophisticated alternative, providing elegant extra space that is genuinely usable all year round.

Taking its name from the original use of a building where citrus trees were overwintered in tubs, the orangery helped lengthen their season by improving the protection first afforded by the warmth of a masonry fruit wall in manor house’s kitchen garden. Their traditional beamed or vaulted roofs with an expanse of window glass are now more likely to offer family, relatives and friends a tranquil space in which to dine under a summer or winter night’s stars or a tantalising refuge in which to get away from the hubbub of a lively household. They are elegant extensions bringing a unique character and style to the home, providing a unity between the boundary of the garden and the living space, letting the light of the outdoors into your daily life.

A Residence orangery can offer a wealth of elegant period features such as beautifully fluted corner pilasters, deep plinths and traditional weatherbar, all stunning with equal sightlines – giving you a space to enjoy in your home that exudes a timeless elegance.

Designed to enhance your home and lifestyle, Residence orangeries are available in a range of traditional colours with an impressive range of hardware options. You could choose to complement your orangery with some elegant yet practical French Doors opening up to give a superb view of your garden. Residence orangeries are low maintenance; there’s no need to spend hours cleaning or painting them.

Design and Finishes

Your Residence windows, doors and orangeries are not only stylish, they will withstand the test of time too. They include state of the art design features and champion British craftsmanship using time honoured traditions and modern manufacturing processes. With a range of splendid styles and configurations, Residence allows you to create an individual design statement for your home. Choose from a vast colour palette and a series of decorative options to truly personalise your Residence system.

 

Colour and Design Choices

The Residence graduate collection is a range of colours and shades to suit different architectural periods and individual choices.

17th Century windows were oak and left unpainted, whilst 19th Century windows were always painted. The inspirational dual colours can transform your home room by room, creating your perfect solution.

Your windows and doors won’t warp, swell, flake or need sanding and painting.

All of this contributes to lower energy bills, keeping you cosy in the winter and cool in the summer

Conservation Areas

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, villages and cities 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.

Article 4

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.

The use of modern material should be accepted provided that the window is of design, dimensions, detailing and opening mechanisms are similar to the original window. You should always obtain prior consent from your planning/conservation officer before proceeding.

Listed Buildings

Listed buildings are the most important buildings in the town and are protected nationally with specific control over alterations. It is generally more difficult to replace windows in these buildings and approval must be obtained via English Heritage or Historic Scotland. Whilst Residence 9 is an authentic looking window it is generally preferred to repair windows in listed buildings.
