North London extension with Heritage doors to replace steel doors and windows

Modern North London extension with traditional twist

This stylish North London extension has created an open-plan kitchen with a traditional twist thanks to the aluminium Heritage Doors.

The extension opens up the rear of the property, replacing smaller, boxy rooms with a large living area. The period theme of the house is incorporated into the design of the extension with a deep blue used in the kitchen and traditional design features and furniture used throughout.

On the rear elevation two sets of single aluminium Heritage Doors are included alongside matching sidelight, fixed frame windows. The Heritage Doors a modern alternative to ‘Crittall style’ doors and windows, giving the Art Deco inspired appearance of traditional steel windows and doors but with the benefit of contemporary thermal and weather performance thanks to the thermally broken aluminium frames.

Using narrow framed aluminium doors and windows as an alternative to steel framed systems is one of the fastest growing trends in glazing. The slim frames are ideal for renovations of traditional properties or for those seeking a neo-industrial style to add character to a new-build home or extension. The IDSystems range of Heritage Doors includes bifold doors and sliding doors alongside French or single doors and sidelights.
