Elegance restored to Edwardian landmark

Mumford & Wood's Conservation windows have helped give a listed building in Highgate a new lease of life

In association with

Timber box sash windows from the Mumford & Wood Conservation range have been specified for a stunning landmark restoration project in the London Borough of Haringey.  Situated in the Highgate Conservation area, this 1916 Edwardian baroque grade II listed building has been converted to two, three and four-bedroom luxurious contemporary lifestyle residential units by Furnival House Developments.

‘Through consultation between Moxley Architects, conservation officers and English Heritage, restoration of Furnival House and its conversion to 15 residential apartments was finally approved and the extensive works commenced at the end of 2013,’ says Scott Martin, regional sales manager, Mumford & Wood. ‘The Edwardian elegance and grandeur of the historic red brick and stone exterior is beautifully complemented with 160 Conservation windows and doors which not only enhance the period aesthetics but contribute significantly to the warmth, comfort and security of the building to provide a sustainable and impeccable living environment.’

The scheme includes the addition of a penthouse to the rear of the property and infills to the U-shaped floor plates at first, second and third floors as well as two new basement levels.

Conservation windows are made to the exacting standards of the British Woodworking Federation’s Wood Window Alliance (WWA) scheme and are BRE A+ rated, offering outstanding levels of thermal and acoustic performance.  Mumford & Wood’s windows and doors are manufactured from premium grade Siberian larch which is engineered for maximum strength and stability to help ensure long lasting aesthetics and performance, while achieving a perfect factory-finished, paint-ready surface typical of fine joinery.
