Lomax + Wood supplied and installed windows and doors for this beautiful Georgian Style home, based in Totteridge. The village of Totteridge used to be a historical village in the county of Hertfordshire. However, the urban expansion of London over the latter half of the 20th century has seen Totteridge fall under the London Borough of Barnet. The village is a mixture of suburban development and open land. Totteridge has had a few notable residents, such as Former Arsenal FC Manager Arsène Wenger and businessman Mike Ashley.
This new build Georgian style property has exposed box-frames around the windows. Most of the box sash windows sit behind the external brickwork in a recessed reveal rather than in a flush reveal. This significant change in style resulted from the Great Fire of London in 1666. In light of the 1709 Building Act In 1709, it changed the minimum recess depth of 100mm from the façade to reduce the risk of fire jumping from one window to another. Another regulation followed this in 1774, requiring that the sash boxes be set back behind the masonry. The conclusion was that the timber sash boxes on either side of the sashes were no longer visible from exterior elevations, causing the window openings to become slimmer and more aesthetically pleasing.
The client used our bronze insulation package for this home, which is ideal for a new build project. Lomax + Wood offers a full installation service for developers and private homeowners.
