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 37mm.
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.
Brimelow McSweeney Architects were appointed to design the refurbishment of this store at 11-12 Floral Street which is at the heart of London’s Covent Garden. Floral Street has a significant concentration of high end retail outlets and so Brimelow McSweeney selected the architectural bronze EBE profile from Secco Sistemi. With it’s luxury aesthetics the choice of architectural bronze ensured that the store not only met the areas already high standards but exceeded them.
Mowat & Company architects were commissioned to design the new flagship store for Berry Bros. & Rudd in Pall Mall. As London’s longest established wine merchant and with their new store literally around the corner from their historic home, it was important for the materials and finishes to communicate the quality that is synonymous with the Berry Bros.& Rudd brand.
As a consequence, Mowat & Company decided to use the Secco OS2 system, in architectural bronze, as a key feature within the store. The slim sight lines and excellent thermal performance, made the Secco OS2 system the perfect choice for the three double door sets, to the chilled fine wine cabinet, at the rear of the store. The use of the OS2 system with thermally efficient plant on glazing bars and matching architectural bronze lock boxes and lever handles adds to experience already enjoyed by Berry Bros. & Rudd customers.
Alex Mowat says “In designing the new store we looked to ways in which products and materials could be both modern and match the tradition of high quality and excellent service of the client’s brand. We selected Secco for quality and Venturi for their service. A great combination! “
A project we supplied back in early 2016 has won a coveted RIBA Regional Award for London.
The project Designed by Allies & Morrison used our Krone Oak/Aluminium Composite windows and doors in a new T Shaped extension to the existing school.
Supplied back in late 2015 the Mayfair Hotel in Stratton St Mayfair, London features the Secco OS2 slim steel system.
The architects, Ettwein Bridges needed a slim heritage steel product but thermally broken to meet modern building requirements. Most of the glazing is fairly straight forward but one screen in particular created a bit of a challenge.
The curved screen had to be ‘flipped round’ due to it being an internally glazed system to allow for glazing and deglazing in case of damage in the future. Although uncommon this can be done with careful design and manufacture to ensure the water tightness is kept.
The system was finished in a special bronze effect polyester powder coat paint to fit in with the local architecture.
This residential project at 180 Albany St was supplied in 2016 with our Uniform Composite Inward opening window system. The architect chose a two tone effect with the anodised Aluminium external frames. The opening sash was a different shade of Bronze anodising to the fixed frame of the glazing system. Internally they opted for our brand new (at the time) polypropylene veneer finish which allows cleaning with chemicals not possible on painted timber windows.
The windows feature an inset design and a juliet balcony fixed to the glazing.
The architects are renowned practice DRMM.
