Renovation of a luxury apartment building in the heart of Knightsbridge featuring minimal windows® glazing.
This stunning property in central London underwent some major renovations internally, without disrupting the buildings external facade. Originally, the building housed nine self-contained flats but was transformed and now contains a mix of lateral and duplex family apartments as well as single storey studio apartments.
The interior design of the building follows a bright and minimal aesthetic, with cream walls and light flooring. This colour scheme is complemented by the dark contrasting stair railings and bold framing on the minimal windows double height glazing elevations.
Stairwells are often areas that are forgotten about, with the space often being dark and dull. This luxury residential property has overcome this issue, with the triple glazed vertical sash windows on either side reaching a staggering 7m tall.
One of the vertical sash windows is fixed whilst the other was designed to allow the bottom pane to slide up, using an automated drive system for ease of opening. This leaves an open aperture, allowing passage through.
Multiple internal courtyards are situated within the building and are enclosed by impressive glass facades. This allows natural light to flow down and filter into the surrounding rooms, highlighting the luxurious interiors and increasing the perceived size of the spaces.
Integrated slot drains were used alongside the minimal windows systems to provide external drainage whilst maintaining a minimal design and flush threshold.
The renovations of this stunning apartment building also featured a range of glass doors and structural glazing, designed and installed by minimal windows UK glazing partners IQ Glass.
