Castle Hill

This new residential property in Berkhampstead was designed by Featherstone Young Architects.

The house is made up of two contrasting wings, one side of the house looking out onto open countryside and the other blends traditional materials with an elegant and efficient building form to blend with the more urban surroundings.

Specified for the scheme were four neo™ roof windows. Three measuring 882mm x 1717mm and one 1207mm x 1802mm.

"We chose neo™ roof windows because of their clean and simple lines and flexible sizing options. We also found a good level of documentation available on the website which meant detailing was made straightforward and hassle free."

neo™ roof windows can be installed roof pitches between 20 and 60 degrees which meant Featherstone Young Architects could utilise neo™ at the varying degrees of the sloping roof.

"The final result looks neat especially the narrow frame lines and the flush mounting into the roof finish"
