A ‘light-filled’ house is one that brings warmth, nature and comfort inside. ‘Light’ was easily achieved in this amazing local project with the addition of GOODWOOD floor to ceiling windows, a clear showpiece in this inviting home.
The house itself was designed by Catt Architects, a Melbourne based firm with over 25 years experience in Australia and the USA. Catt Architects wanted to feature Paarhammer windows, doors and facade for the large glazed areas due to their experience and commitment to quality.
Paarhammer Windows are one of Australia’s superior window manufacturers. Established in 1990, Paarhammer have a keen emphasis on quality through craftsmanship and an unwavering commitment to the environment. Owners, Tony and Edith, and their team provide the competitive window and door market with a unique range of products and customer service.
Both Catt Architects and Paarhammer’s focus was to fill the space with natural light to create an inviting ambience and reduce the need for artificial lighting. Edith from Paarhammer added “the windows and doors are made from Australian Sustainable Hardwood’s GoodWood Victorian ash, which was dipped into wood preservative and factory spray-pained with a low VOC water-based paint to provide a long lasting finish”.
One major benefit to GoodWood Victorian ash is often overlooked – the fact that the consistent grain is ideal for staining the timber any colour. Choose to keep the light, blonde colour or stain it dark to suit your décor like Paarhammer have done. Learn more about GOODWOOD windows here or check out the entire range here.
