Freeland House is a nursing home set in a 19th Century building, with six acres of woodland and landscaped gardens. The care home consists of two stone buildings originally built in 1807 and in 1984 run as a care home.
To provide further accommodation, the home was extended in 1998. The architect's brief was for Croydon Windows to supply and install new Aluminium curtain walling, with windows and doors to the recently new purpose built wing, inserted in between the two old buildings.
The new extension aimed to increase living space introducing views of beautiful grounds over the stunning Oxfordshire countryside.
Working closely with the construction company, we combined modern and sustainable design within the stone buildings providing our client a unique and contemporary day space area. High performance Aluminium curtain walling (Comar 6) in powder coated grey RAL 7037M, glazed with clear toughened and insulated double glazed units were used, also installing tilt and turn windows with glazed aluminium powder coated louvres fitted with fibre glass insect mesh, and aluminium doors to have panic devices with no outside entry to ensure security at the care home.
By increasing the new glazing area within our clients brief, it gives the purest sense of space and light boasting extensive views over their private gardens for residents to enjoy.
