Grantley Hall extension balances new with old

Senior Architectural Systems' aluminium curtain walling, doors and windows have been installed in the modern annexe of a Grade II listed hotel in Ripon, North Yorkshire

Aluminium fenestration solutions from Senior Architectural Systems have helped breathe new life into the recently refurbished Grantley Hall in North Yorkshire.

The Grade II listed building has been renovated and extended to provide luxury hotel accommodation and a new-build spa and wellness retreat. The new building features Senior’s aluminium curtain walling, windows and doors, which were fabricated and installed by Aire Valley Architectural Aluminium for main contractor R N Wooler and architects Bowman Riley.

A key challenge was to minimise the impact of the new extension on the hall, which dates back to the 17th century. With all the original windows in the hall restored, the new fenestration package had to be appropriate in terms of aesthetics and performance. The slim sightlines of Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system provided a fitting solution and were complemented by the company's SPW501 commercial doors and patented low U-value Pure aluminium windows.
