In at the deep end?

Stellar aluminium windows and doors from Epwin Window Systems were selected for a complex refurbishment of a grade two listed high-end pool house for a home near Crediton in Devon.

The Stellar windows and doors were manufactured and installed by Devon and Cornwall Windows, and owner Adam Page said: “The original pool house had ageing timber windows set onto a dwarf wall which needed to be replaced. However, the homeowner was keen to create a high-end, functional space that maximised natural light throughout the room. We suggested replacing the existing windows and wall with full height windows and doors from the Stellar aluminium range to deliver the light-filled sophisticated space the homeowner specified.”

As a grade two listed building, full planning and listed building consent was needed. Also, the new Stellar products would form three sides of the building and needed to support the original slate roof, which meant a galvanised steel ring beam was required to provide the necessary strength.

Devon and Cornwall Windows manufactured and fitted a combination of full-height Stellar fixed panes, a five-pane Stellar Bifold Door and a set of Stellar French Doors with fixed sidelights. All products were manufactured in a black powder coating.

“Stellar’s slim profile design allowed maximum light into the pool house,” Adam said. “And by fitting a five-panel Stellar Bifold Door to the east elevation, it has opened up the room completely with a seamless transition to the outdoor pool area. As a result, the pool room is completely transformed and the homeowner is delighted.”
