This spectacular new Georgian-style home is another joint project, built by Benjamin Allen Bespoke Homes with windows, doors and other materials supplied by Parker Joinery and Parker Building Supplies.
Parker Joinery have supplied Bereco Contemporary entrance doors, French doors including a set of exceptionally tall curved head French doors overlooking the garden and swimming pool, and contemporary spiral balance sliding sashes featuring 16mm Georgian bar. Parker Building Supplies supplied the majority of the building materials for the project.
Benjamin Allen are renowned for combining the best of contemporary building disciplines with the sense of grandeur and proportion which is key to Georgian architecture. Houses of the period follow strict rules in terms of size and position of windows and doors, roof pitches and so on.
Sliding sash windows were the most common windows used in the Georgian era whereas earlier versions featured more panes of glass.
Six-over-six was typical of the early Georgian era, but by the end four-over-four or even two-over-two was used as it became possible to make larger panes of glass.
The period was known to feature uncluttered, elegant façades and usually panelled, painted front doors. Bereco’s contemporary entrance door range maintains the elegance of the era.
Classical motifs, columns, and other features of Roman architecture were fashionable at the time, as were roofs with wide overhangs and shallow pitches on Palladian-style homes – a Georgian style inspired by 16th century Italian architect Andrea Palladio.
Parker Joinery have a long established working partnership with Bereco who offer high performance timber windows and doors in both softwood and hardwood. From contemporary new builds to traditional replacements or when conservation approval is required.
