Nestled in the rural hills of the Netherlands, an area nicknamed Green Carpet houses a traditional home. The home needed to be reflective of the area, characterised for its natural surroundings.

Slim framed systems were chosen to allow as much natural light into the home as possible, without detracting from the traditional design. The property is constructed with an eclectic mix of various roof styles, including a thatched section. The angular, sharp edged home uses round-shaped window systems to create an elegant contrast.

The beauty of MHB luxury steel systems is the flexibility in design, with any shape possible. In this instance, round shapes were required at the top whilst sharp edged square shapes were needed at the bottom of the dining room windows.

The bespoke window systems allow a massive amount of natural light to flood the internal living spaces and a steel door system provides direct access to the manicured lawns. The home utilises the adaptability of these premium steel systems, creating bespoke shaped windows to encourage paths of natural light.

Glazing bars were used within the window and door designs, giving a nod to the original charm of the period property. The addition of these thermally broken, unique systems modernise the home without detracting from the original design.

The homeowners successfully expanded their useable space, creating bright internal spaces and dynamic shapes for a luxurious home design.
