Major refurbishment of early 20th century hotel
The windows have transformed the look of the building
“We replaced plastic windows with the beautiful timber sash windows from Dale Joinery – they have transformed the look of the building and given it the look it deserves.”
Mr Infanti – Developer and Co-owner
Windows & Doors
The Lodge, Duxford is a 17-room boutique hotel, restaurant and bar in the Cambridgeshire village.
Having undergone a major, ‘from scratch’ refurbishment, this charming early 1900s structure has been given a new lease of life with stylish, cosy rooms to stay in and a classy bar and restaurant for customers to enjoy.
Co-owner Mr Infanti and his business partners took on and managed the project entirely themselves, including all the design work and crucial decisions.
Looking to restore the building to its former glory, the windows were a critical element to get right. Poorly chosen plastic windows were detracting from the façade previously, so traditional and authentically styled timber sash windows, along with some casement windows and French doors were selected.
“Dale was recommended to us by a trusted friend who has also used the Dale product range on a couple of projects themselves” the owners comment.
“We’re really happy with how the whole project has come together.”
“Customers and visitors have commented on and admired the windows, and often asked for the details of who supplied them.”
In order to restore the façade of the building, the only appropriate choice was authentic timber sash windows. With simple, vertical astragal bars and a finish of ‘Pure White’ these striking windows are also hung on our innovative Hidden Spring mechanism.
Sash Windows (Triple)
This triple sash window has a sliding centre and two fixed side panels. Finished in ‘Pure White’ with elegant, vertical astragal bars and decorative sash horns, this new window has helped restore the traditional look.
