Cumbrian Summer Room

At Richard James Joinery, we relish the opportunity to collaborate on projects that blend the old with the new, infusing character and modernity into classic architectural settings. This project involved the complete renovation and extension of an old cottage, culminating in the creation of a breathtaking summer room that provided panoramic views of the surrounding Cumbrian landscape.

To illuminate the summer room and bring the beauty of the outdoors inside, we crafted and installed a series of sash windows. These windows were carefully designed to complement the modern aesthetics of the summer room while respecting the architectural heritage of the cottage.

The sash windows not only flooded the space with natural light but also framed the picturesque views beyond, creating a captivating view that changed with the seasons. Their classic design added a touch of timeless elegance to the room, enhancing its overall appeal.


Style: Sash Window I Architectural

Timber: Made from high-performance, high quality Accoya®
