ANSTY PLUM HOUSE + STUDIO in WIltshire, England by Coppin Dockray Architecture & Design

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: Coppin Dockray Architecture & Design

Ansty Plum is an architecturally significant house and studio in rural Wiltshire that has undergone an impressive retrofit and a bold studio extension.

It is a gem, consisting of two eloquent and imaginative buildings, commissioned in the 1960’s and ‘70’s by Roger Rigby, a former partner in Ove Arup’s office. The first is a one-bedroom house, designed by David Levitt and the second, a studio and garage designed by Peter and Alison Smithson.

Article source: The Heritage Window Company

We are very proud to have recently completed a complex but rewarding installation in Walton on the Hill, UK. In late 2015 we were approached by Kennedys’ Estate Agents.

They were looking to replace their original windows with something more modern. Not in terms of design but more economical in terms of energy and of course safer when it comes to security.
