Contemporary "super prime" country house
“Fantastic interpretation of centuries-old architecture without just mimicking it. Not a reproduction but an interpretation. Stately and interesting use of windows.” –Bill Devereaux
Though it looks like it’s been around for decades, this “Super Prime” 19,000-square-foot English country house is new construction. It was influenced by the Arts & Crafts style homes of the early 1900s. The architect describes it as “a successful marriage of traditional craft skills, with both sustainable technology and passive design.”
The primary challenge was to maintain the charm of a traditional English country home, while incorporating contemporary building technologies, techniques and sustainability. The result is a home that is highly energy efficient and practical to maintain, while incorporating the luxury finishes and facilities expected in a property of this caliber.
For this construction with a high level of personalization and customization, Marvin was the obvious window and door solution. The Clad Ultimate Push-Out Casement system worked beautifully with the specific style of the home design, while maintaining the practicality and efficiency the architect strove for.
