This home's architectural doors and windows were made and installed by Fairview Wellington Wairarapa using joinery from Aluminium Systems
Selecting the right window and door frames for a home will optimise its comfort and lift the aesthetic at the same time – after all, if the facade is the face, then they are the designer jewellery.
This modern home by Steve Pilbrow Design and Build features windows, doors and skylights created by Fairview Wellington Wairarapa. The formed joinery was supplied by Aluminium Systems, says Fairview co-owner Kate Langford.
"The home's distinctive double-glazed green tinted windows and large sliding doors are set off by extruded metal frames, specified by the architect in Silver Pearl," says Langford.
All the substantial doors and windows in the living areas and upstairs conference room were built with the Fairview Architectural Suite. Clerestory windows were coupled to give them the appearance of being a single unit. This suite is seen again on the home's large internal slider, which is fitted with opaque glass.
The sister suite, Evolution, was used for all smaller windows and hinged doors that did not require the greater glazing platform needed for the larger areas of glass. Evolution matches the external look of the Architectural Suite and was also selected for the pivoting cedar entry door.
To create the home's skylights, a thermally broken roof light was employed. A duo system was needed to cope with their weight and size.
The clear Euroglass Frameless Glass System was introduced for the internal balustrading.
