Refurbishment in City of Westminster
Maida Vale, London
This early 20th Century mansion block of six contemporary-style apartments falls within the conservation area of the City of Westminster. The area is mostly residential, mainly affluent, with many large late Victorian and Edwardian blocks of mansion apartments. Windows were required to suit the conservation area whilst providing modern standards of 21st Century living.
At the six-storey Lincoln Court, Conservation™ Tilt & Slide sash windows have been installed. These specially adapted sash windows are hung on pre-tensioned springs and have a tilt and slide bottom sash which efficiently and conveniently tilts inwards into the room.
Externally the window matches the rest of the collection, with slender meeting rails, fine glazing bars and traditional mouldings.
Internally this innovative design feature allows the lower sash to be released and tilted for easy access, maintenance and cleaning. The Tilt & Slide window is the natural choice for mid and high rise developments, such as mansion apartment blocks with difficult external access.
Ben Lines, Cluttons LLP, who specified Mumford & Wood, says: “I was very happy with the design and after sales service provided by Mumford & Wood, and the quality of the windows is excellent. The tilt and turn feature is a real benefit for our client, enabling maintenance and cleaning work to be undertaken without the need for expensive external access equipment.”
