Schuco systems installed to luxury residential development
IQ was delighted yesterday to be named the Residential Development Winner at the annual Schueco Excellence Awards for Design and Innovation, for the work carried out by IQ at Rosemoor Studios in Chelsea, London. Working in tandem with Haptic Architects, IQ revitalised the site of an old townhouse and studio complex by providing aluminium windows and doors for a four-bedroom townhouse and 4 equally impressive luxury apartments.
Both aesthetically pleasing internally and externally, the development included a beautiful, yet sophisticated combination of brickwork and precast stone so as to stay congruent with the surrounding area, whilst starkly juxtaposed with the sleek, bronze powder-coated aluminium windows and doors.
IQ and Haptic Architects employed IQ’s aluminium window and door package, which uses Schueco profiles, to implement full height (2708mm high) fixed casement aluminium windows and casement doors, as well as tilt-and-turn windows to create an external facade that satisfies both the client as well as onlookers. At the rear of the development, minimal windows® 4+ sliding glass doors were installed, which benefitted the apartments both practically and aesthetically; the doors can achieve a Uw value of 0.6 W/m2K, guaranteeing a more than sufficient level of thermal insulation for the property, and have a 26mm sightline at the interlock, whilst remaining frameless on all other edges.
A terrific achievement for IQ and all those involved; we are thrilled to have won this highly-esteemed award. We believe that this award pays testament to the extent to which IQ works to deliver an exquisite finish and a satisfied client; not just at Rosemoor Studios, but in everything we do.
