Project Details

Once a convent in Haywards Heath, this property over three floors has been converted into residential dwellings which are truly stunning homes. With huge windows and high ceilings, shutters are the ideal window dressing and provide added insulation for the original windows. As a listed building, there is no possibility of upgrading to modern triple glazed units, so shutters are the next best option.

The client wanted to dress many windows in the property with shutters but the landing windows were a much more unique request.

Both landing windows were large and drafty, but totally stunning with their gothic features. Dressing these windows for insulation, but maintaining their aesthetic presence was key.

It was decided that a custom colour Farrow & Ball shade of ‘Railings’ (which is nearly Black) would be used on the solid shutters, with stainless steel hardware.

Using six panels across the opening, we could keep the stacks quite narrow within the reveals, so that they could be opened for light in the daytime.

The dramatic colour is truly eye-catching in the tall landing areas and they look like they have always been there, rather than taking over from the period features of the property.

This was one of our most striking installs of 2019. We were delighted that our client had the vision to see the final article and we are thrilled with the results, especially as they are so in keeping with the property.
