Garratt Lane, South West London

Bi-Folding Doors
Extensions & Renovations
Work with our Partners


This London townhouse has been designed, constructed & finished to the highest detail by London based property builders & redevelopers the Buildguru. The brief for Garratt Lane was to create a luxury property with maximum natural light throughout, whilst making the most of every bit of available space and creating a clear connection between the inside and outside space. The team at Buildguru had expertly designed plans in place and visited our Weybridge showroom to meet with our team to discuss how our products could play a fundamental role in meeting the brief for this bespoke property development.

What we delivered

Our products played a key role in the rear and side elevations of the property. Bi-folding doors are perfect for townhouses as they can make a space larger and can extend a room out into the garden. The floor to ceiling glass panels look great, pour natural light into the home and keep the garden & outside space in constant view. Thanks to our bi-folding doors the home can also be extended, door panels can be swept aside to open the property onto the snug external courtyard or out onto the beautifully finished outdoor patio area.

Courtyard Dreaming

A superb element of this properties design is the clever use of zones within the home. The cosy and snug lounge area is conveniently positioned next to bedroom and en-suite and a wonderful feature of both is the benefit of our bi-folding doors. Concealed by a high, light rendered wall both rooms remain private whilst retaining the benefits of natural light and best of all the ability to extend either or both rooms out onto an external courtyard. The Compact courtyard is ideal for a morning coffee or late-night aperitif before bed. The courtyard allows the living area to be extended when entertaining guests or simply to take in some fresh air whilst spending a relaxing evening in front of the TV.

Beautiful but functional windows

Aluminium windows are a key feature within this property. The kitchen contains a full tilt & turn window complete with trickle-vent. The slender frames look great and suit the modern kitchen whilst the ability to tilt inwards or open in completely provides the required ventilation in an open-plan kitchen space. The master bedroom contains a feature shaped window, an architectural detail that looks stunning from both inside and outside of the property. The shaped window is effectively a wall of glass so ensures that the space is well lit, whilst adding a statement contemporary feature to the master bedroom.

The perfect solution for upper floor windows

Our frameless glass balustrade ensures that the feature glazing not only looks great but can also bring the benefits of outdoor living as the large window tilts and fully opens inwards to allow fresh air to flow into the room. The balcony screen seamless connects to our window products to alleviate any safety concerns with full height opening bedroom windows such as this. An increasingly popular product that is perfect for upper floor glazing such as this. Our frameless balustrade looks great and is installed at the same time as the window, alleviating any delays on site and the new need to deal with a third party to add a safety barrier in front of your beautiful new feature windows.

Bi-folding doors inside and out.

Another notable feature of this development is that the property flows through from front to back. The clever use of bi-folding doors on both elevations allows the courtyard space to connect to the large garden area with the living and dining area in between to create effectively one large and secluded space, an idyllic oasis in the heart of the London. The doors can then be closed to contract the space, whilst retaining the light, and modern feeling that is gained from slim-framed bi-fold doors.

The dining table is positioned next to the kitchen and folding doors so the decision of whether to eat inside or outside can be discussed with no concerns about a sudden change in the weather. The beautiful outdoor social area is always in view so whether the lucky homeowners are working from home, cooking at home, unwinding at home or entertaining, they’ll certainly be incredibly happy to call this multi-functional, stunning space their home.
