CLIENT: Des Ewing
Brightwater is a prestigious 4,000 sq ft, 2 storey private house designed by Des Ewing, located on the shores of Chichester harbour.
The property is designed so that the extensive kitchen, living room and dining area all enjoy harbour views, while the snug and the study face inland.
All windows and doors are by Schueco. The systems specified include FWS 50+ curtain walling, AWS 70.HI windows, an AWS/ADS 70.HI hinged door and most significantly, several sets of ASS 70.HI lift-and-slide doors with slimline central interlock. AWS 70 double-height feature window in the hallway allows the morning light to penetrate deep into the building’s interior and, at dusk, lights up the circular glass-sided staircase in the hall.
The excellent thermal performance of the Schueco systems means that despite the large areas of glazing, overall energy consumption in the house remains very low, delivering important environmental benefits and economical energy bills.
DG Glass were responsible for overall fabrication and installation of the windows and doors throughout the property.
