Domestic Commendation for La Madonnina

La Madonnina Featured

A home nestled in the woodland area of Hertfordshire, this luxury home was awarded the Domestic Commendation award in the Hertfordshire Association of Architects 2018 Awards. Recognised for its bespoke design, the property uses a combination of aluminium profiles and wooden cladding to form a completely unique façade design.

The angular design makes the home really unique, with fixed glass filling the gable ends and slim framed sliding glass doors underneath the pitched roofline, creating a double height glass effect. Frameless glass balustrades were used as safety barriers on the balcony areas, protecting the occupants without detracting from the exterior design thanks to the transparent and subtle nature.

A number of aluminium window systems were used across the ground and first floors, including tilt and turn windows that have a high glass to frame ratio and allow an abundance of natural light into the internal living space.
