Tower Barn, Broadway Tower
Aluminium windows and doors from Gloucestershire-based COTSWOLD WINDOWS have helped transform a derelict barn into Tower Barn, a visitor centre, retail area and bar alongside the Broadway Tower landmark.
It was crucial that the barn renovation used products and materials that complemented the Cotswold building stone and the windows and doors were integral to this.
The Broadway Tower team chose Cotswold Windows to supply and install an aluminium lift and slide door, alongside a selection of Schuco windows and entrance doors. The aluminium profile used to fabricate the windows and doors was powder coated using a RAL colour to complement the Cotswold stone and oak beams. Cotswold Windows used 8.8mm laminate and 8mm toughened, low emissivity (Low-E) glass for the large format lift and slide doors, which offers superior thermal insulation.
“We were looking for something which would allow for natural light to flood in, as well as being practical and in-keeping with the building,” said a Tower Barn spokesperson.
“They provide lots of natural light and enable visitors to see in before they enter the building. “The sliding doors are fantastic and make it easier for customers and the team to access the rear terraced area without doors opening in and out.”
“The overall look of Tower Barn is beautiful, and we get so many people asking where our windows etc. came from. It is lovely to have used local companies who we can name when asked!”
