One Westbourne Gardens is an exceptional residential development in the heart of Bayswater in West London which has provided a collection of nine striking apartments featuring specially-engineered large span aluminium picture windows and balcony door solutions from Wicona.
The building is set within an impressive white stucco-fronted façade which harmonises well with the listed buildings and handsome Victorian terraces nearby.
Stunning Full-height Feature Glazing
Each apartment has a contemporary design with luxuriously-appointed interiors and stunning full-height feature glazing from Wicona. Some of the properties in this exclusive development benefit from ‘wrap-around’ roof terraces or overlook an integral winter garden.
The WICLINE 65 evo double vent balcony doors with heavy-duty profiles were used to meet the architects’ requirements for exceptionally large openings. These were up to 2.2m wide and 2.4m high, and specified in an open-in configuration for the apartments on the top floor and with no centre mullion for even wider access.
On the ground floor, large WICSTYLE 65 evo pivot doors with 2.8m high door leaves were used for the main entrance and are complemented by fixed light WICLINE evo windows, with open-in casements used from the first floor upwards.
To provide additional security and acoustic performance, all the glazing was low E laminated and toughened glass. The balcony door frames were faceted at the corner to express this visually dominant aspect of the building and some of the apartments have Juliette glass balconies.
In the centre of the building is a winter garden courtyard with an open roof providing a light well and a unique amenity for residents. Wicona’s WICLINE 65 evo open-in and open-out double vent windows and balcony doors look out onto this space from some of the apartments.
