A Throwback To House Rademan By Metal Windows & Kube Architecture
Brick, concrete, steel and glass. House Rademan is a masterfully designed project conceived by architect Simon Mountford from Kube Architecture in partnership with Metal Windows.
Don’t be fooled by the exterior. This industrial looking building is detailed in construction in the same method as a fruit pack house. The key element in the design language was integrity of materials. Every detail had to be considered – down to the use of brick, concrete, steel and glass. Thus, the steel frame of the structure and the steel windows and doors downstairs are exposed and hand-painted.
Abundance of Light
Light is abundant with both main elevations filled with steel-framed window elements. The central core of the house opens into a double volume space with a massive steel and glass façade providing light and access. Two 4m wide full height, sliding panels open the whole ground floor living space to the beautiful back garden.
Upstairs in the bedrooms, Metal Windows supplied and fitted custom made aluminium windows set into custom, powder-coated window linings. The linings are based on the patented BarsDamp® waterproof surround principle developed by Larry and exclusive to Metal Windows.
The upstairs aluminium windows and linings integrate seamlessly with the steel window and door systems and custom standing seam wall cladding employed on the external wall surfaces.
