Residence 9 Windows Chosen For Old Bank Transformation

by | Jun 27, 2024 | On-Site

26 original timber alternative windows from window and door designer, The Residence Collection, have been installed into a former bank as part of a new apartment project.

Partnering with installer Silent View Windows and fabricator CWG Choices, 26 Residence 9 windows were installed in the historic 18th-century building in the centre of Thame Town High Street.

R9 windows in the popular Grained White colourway, featuring leaded glass, were used to provide elements of 19th-century architectural design, replicating the style of the original structure. These windows offer modern functionality and energy efficiency, aligning with the preservation needs of the conservation area. Notably, R9 was the only timber alternative window that was approved during the planning process, according to the company.

The selected windows exceed British Building Regulation standards with a u-value of 1.2W/m²K, offering A++ energy with double glazing as standard. The R9 collection, available in 21 colours, provides optimal insulation and energy savings, claims the company. For this project, Grained White was chosen, a colour that is one of The Residence Collection’s best sellers.

Enis Evlat, managing director at Silent View Windows, explained: “We are so pleased that the R9 windows perfectly replicate the style of the windows from 1910. These windows not only add to the aesthetics but also bring exceptional durability and energy efficiency.

“Our team took great pride in joining this project to seamlessly integrate each window to perfection. We’re thrilled to have been part of this project alongside The Residence Collection windows and fabricator CWG Choices”.

Jo Trotman, marketing manager at The Residence Collection, commented: “This project is a perfect example of how the R9 windows can be used to replicate that heritage feel and look while still being high-performing and energy-efficient. This project opted for a window that perfectly complemented the building while still capitalising on all the other performance qualities that the R9 boasts.

“The transformation of the historic NatWest Bank offices into modern apartments presented a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Retaining the architectural integrity of the original structure was paramount, and the R9 windows provided an ideal solution by combining traditional aesthetics with cutting-edge functionality. The result is a seamless blend of old and new, honouring the building’s legacy while providing contemporary living spaces.

“Establishing quality partnerships is crucial to the delivery of our superior design, manufacturing, and installation services that we consistently provide to our customers. For this project, Silent View Windows and CWG Choices played pivotal roles in seamlessly executing this transformation. Their expertise and attention to detail ensured that every aspect of the window installation met our high standards. We look forward to future projects with them and to continuing to set benchmarks in the industry.”
