Award-winning new build project
Contemporary architects AR Design Studio specified AluK’s aluminium systems for the 4Views residential project in Winchester, which has been awarded by the Sunday Times for the British Home Awards 2014.
AluK window and door systems were specified to enhance the views over the South Downs hills, whilst providing the homeowners with a long-lasting solution that will keep their home safe. Overlooking the City of Winchester, this stunning house has been designed to create a positive feel and ambience. Based on the principle that a connection with nature is beneficial to the body, the house provides a space for reflection, offering inspiring views over the city and the beautiful countryside.
For the project AluK BSC94 (Duo Rail) and BSC94 (Triple Track) Sliding Door System, as well as 58BW ST Steel Replacement Window System were specified. These have then been used for extensive glazing of walls, roof lights and for the open central garden entrance to allow natural light to flood the upper floor, enhance the feeling of space and ensure natural ventilation and free flow of fresh air.
In addition, inherently strong and long-lasting, aluminium stands up to the challenges of everyday life. AluK’s building systems have been designed to offer customers the highest thermal performance levels, keeping the heat inside the house, reducing energy bills as well as carbon footprint.
Laura Locke, architect at AR Design Studio comments: “At AR Design Studio we are always looking to create innovative contemporary design with clean, refined materials and detail. We look to create high quality, modern, elegant and functional design solutions. This is why we used AluK building systems at 4Views and frequently choose AluK products for other projects."
