This Art Deco house had its original single glazed steel windows before the client decided to add a rear extension and upgrade the house.
Our partner Skyglaze chose to offer the Secco OS2 65 thermally broken system in Painted galvanised steel throughout the house as part of its modernisation whilst keeping its existing character and Art Deco style.
The most challenging part was the new curved glazing on the corners which were quite large and so difficult to install.
The result is an exceptional modernisation that looks just like it did before but with a much better thermal performance.
We will be present with both Secco Sistemi and Uniform at the architectural trade show Architect@work on 30th and 31st January at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch.
We will feature at the show new products from both Secco Sistemi and Uniform.
From Secco, a new non thermally broken internal use version of the award winning OS2 windows and door system.
From Uniform our latest design in ultra slim composite windows. An opening window with a sightline of just 38mm!
We are pleased to announce our latest product range of truly Bespoke Hardware.
Many projects require products that are not available and so need something truly bespoke.
Our range of Italian designed and manufactured handles and hardware can be produced to your own specific design requirements.
The two key techniques used in the production of these products include casting and the CNC machining of brass. To the surface of the brass a wide range of finishes can then be applied including standard burnishing, chrome plating, natural timber, leather, tiger eye (rare stone), Stingray tail etc etc. Hardware can even receive your monogram or logo.
Designed and manufactured for us by an Italian company that commenced production in Northern Italy in 1720, we can offer:
Door handles, Window handles, Pull handles, Drawer pulls, Doorstops, Door knobs, Lift and Slide handles, Hooks, Letter plates, Hinge sets, and almost anything to match the design you require.

Uniform oak windows and doors were supplied in the recently completed project by Muma Architects. Uniform was chosen due to the ability to offer Oak as an internal finish and also some unusual shaped windows, as seen above.
The project which was secured in October 2015 is part of the much larger North West Cambridge development.
Uniform S.p.a have launched the slimmest composite window on the market with a sight line for an opening or fixed vent at just 38mm.
This is almost 20mm slimmer than the market leader and will be available for specification in Q4 2018 with the first windows on site in early 2019.
Not only is the slim but with the patented hinge design it can support extremely heavy glass, usually needed for acoustic performance.
Windows can also be fixed together using the innovative flitch plate system to guarantee alignment on site.
Secco have once again shown why they are the market leader with another wonderful Archidays event in Venice during the Biennale 2018.
A select group of UK based architects were invited to join other architects from all over the world for an exclusive event and a chance to visit the world famous Venice Biennale.
Starting with a tour of the factory and a presentation of all things Secco this was followed by A private visit to the Vatican Pavilion on San Giorgio island including a talk by the curators was followed by a lavish meal with operatic entertainment.
The next day after a full day visiting the Biennale it was a boat trip on an old wooden boat out to Torcello and a private visit and talk in the famous Torcello cathedral.
Uniform Architectural have added a new solution to their ever growing number of bespoke architectural solutions, an integrated glass, or metal, balustrade.
This factory fitted solution fixes neatly behind the front aluminium clad on the Uni_One inward opening composite system.
It’s fully certified for barrier loading and removes the need for a second fix or the problem of where to fasten the balustrade to after the windows are fitted.
This private residential project was designed by Chris Dyson Architects using Bronze EBE Doors from Secco Sistemi.
Attention to detail was key in providing the best finish for this very discerning client. The architects chose the EBE85 triple glazed door system for maximum thermal efficiency and concealed hinges for an exceptional finish. The doors were manufactured in the UK by Wellington Glazing who is one of Secco’s approved UK fabricators.
