Fenestration is the science of arranging openings in a building. It is a discipline that is older and more complex than it might seem. Here, we will delve into the world of fenestration, from the derivation of the word to its application across the years and in modern-day architecture and construction.

Renovated Amberwood House, London with New Timber French Doorsets & Casement Windows

Posted: 10 December 2021

Lomax & Wood was selected to supply and install custom made Timber French doors & casement windows as part of the complete renovation of Amberwood House London. An esteemed residence that has undergone an entire renovation cost more than £28 million starting in 2019, including an extension costing over £11 million to attract ultra-high net worth individuals who desire a Knightsbridge residence. The property has been extended with what can be considered to be the last of the ‘Mega-basement’ extensions in Knightsbridge with a 12m-deep excavation beneath Amberwood House. The property has recently been featured on Channel 4s, Extraordinary Extensions, and its owner is likely to be selling it in the region of £75m.

If the Government really cares it should intervene - and fast!

Posted: 07 November 2013

“As a specialist and responsible manufacturer our products are frequently specified for listed properties and stylish, traditional new-builds,” says Chris Wood., “and our products provide high standards of security, thermal and acoustic performance.  But there is a great divide between the thermal performance requirements of products used in new- build and for those in listed properties.  Great swathes of buildings in London, where we do a lot of business, are either listed or lie within a conservation area and planners and conservation officers, under the guidance of English Heritage, are allowed to completely ignore building legislation and the government’s requirement for the improvement of our housing stock and their goal to achieve carbon neutral status by the middle of this decade.
