WarmCore windows and doors were installed on one of George Clarke’s ‘Old House, New Home’ projects, aired on Channel 4 in August.
The third episode of the series featured period properties in Wales and Hove, where the WarmCore bifolding door and full-height windows were installed in a renovated kitchen by The Window Workshop, working with Empire Construction Group.
The homeowners were granted planning permission to extend the small kitchen at the rear of the period property, but not to add the full wrap around extension that they had hoped for. This gave them an L-shaped room which they needed to convert into a kitchen, dining and relaxation space. With two large WarmCore windows, a WarmCore bifold and Global roof, they have created a space which connects the kitchen and garden while maximising the space and light available.
The homeowners opted for an anthracite grey interior finish, streamlining the grey accents which feature throughout the rest of the kitchen space to blend the old with the new.
Daniel Revell from The Window Workshop, said: “It was by chance that we got involved in the project. We do a lot of work with Empire Construction Group who happened to be working around the corner from the production company’s HQ in Brighton.
“One of the George Clarke team poked their head over a fence and asked if they had any interesting projects coming up. We are a small company so we could send the staff who wanted to be there – they were nervous but keen to do themselves and our company proud on-site, even if I did joke with them about needing to spend some time in make-up first. All worth it for the three seconds they appeared on the show.”
