A single storey family room extension has been carefully placed away from the key historic facades. This ensured minimal disturbance to the historic fabric and setting, allowing the listed structure to remain dominant in scale and presence.The use of glass links allows visual separation while creating a flow between the listed building and extension.

a distinctive contemporary holiday home on the Norfolk Broads.Westcoast Windows worked closely with their distributor partner, the client and architect on the Sunnybank project, where the first phase involved renovating this individual home on stilts.The second phase focused on creating the lower floor to produce a unique upside down house with beautiful views across the River Bure.The project was specified with Westcoast Windows’ triple-glazed Design series. Developed with contemporary architecture in mind, it features a deeper glass unit to create a minimal step between outer glass and frame for maximum light, a flush finish and elegant lines.The triple-glazed composite windows and doors were chosen for their high performance, exceptional energy efficiency and suitability for taking advantage of the stunning waterside views.The low maintenance aluminium exterior was finished in the stylish dark grey RAL 7012 and the interior finished in clean, fresh white to complement the stunning contemporary open plan living area.Large composite sliding doors glide effortlessly to create a bright, airy feel to the living area and open out onto the veranda to connect with the outside and beautiful waterside views.The client was delighted with the Westcoast Windows products and fitting provided by approved distributor partner, Aluminium Clad Windows by TWN.“I would just like to thank all the team at TWN Aluminium Clad Windows for their help from the initial quotation stage through to installation,” says the client. “I am very happy with the overall appearance and specification, which complements the architectural style of my house."The windows and doors have allowed me to achieve my desired end result with large openings that give an uninterrupted view of the outdoors.”Find out more on Westcoast Windows' website.

cottage they’d recently bought was simply too impractical and expensive to restore, Mark and Sonia Boulton decided that a replacement build was the best route to a bespoke, eco-friendly home.With Mark deciding to take on the role of project manager, the couple worked alongside an architectural designer and chose to commission English Brothers to create the skeleton of their home. The house’s building fabric is a key part of its sustainability credentials, comprising an engineered timber frame insulated with the breathable and thermally-resistant material, hempcrete (which pairs the hemp stem’s woody core with a lime-based binder).Mark and Sonia were particularly impressed by English Brothers’ experience in mixing oak elements with standard panelised timber frame. “Where there would normally be a rolled steel joist for support, we’ve pretty much got oak everywhere,” says Mark.The speed at which everything came together was another big plus for this construction method. “A key advantage of using a factory-manufactured timber frame is how quickly the build takes shape on site,” says Mark. “In fact, it took less than three weeks to assemble.” Once the skeleton was erected, an eight-strong team of tradesmen worked quickly to get the shell watertight and install service ducting into the frame, ready for the hempcrete to be poured.With the walls insulated and ground floor structure in place, the rest of the house soon came together. The couple added a host of renewable tech to maximise energy efficiency, including solar thermal panels, a solar electric array, log boiler, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system and woodburning stove.Thanks in part to the quality service provided by English Brothers, the scheme won the Build It Award for Best Timber Frame Home in 2015.
