A stunning home in Castle Hill, Sydney featuring doors and windows from Architectural Window Systems was awarded AWA’s Best Use of Windows & Doors: Residential New Construction Under $500,000 for 2015.

Sitting adjacent to a pristine bush corridor, the home combines clever design, construction, and choice of windows and doors to achieve a much-coveted balance between the natural environment and the interior of this modern, spacious home.

Designed by architecture firm ICR Design and built by Brownies Constructions, the beautiful home won its fabricator Mid City Windows, AWA’s 2015 Best Use of Windows & Doors: Residential New Construction Under $500,000 award. AWA Awards recognise fenestration products that complement and enhance the design of a dwelling or building.

A major highlight of the home’s design is a series of stunning views, each framed by expansive, large-format designer windows, which include strategically placed fixed glazing, louvres and awning windows. This design not only creates a light-filled interior and a sleek, architectural look but also promotes exceptional cross-ventilation, reducing the need for air-conditioning. All products also use Low E glass, contributing to the property’s overall sustainability and energy efficiency.

The stairway that leads to the first floor from the entry foyer features a magnificent two-storey glazed curtain wall and glazed balustrade, further enhancing the open feel of the home and its interconnectedness with the natural abundance of its location.

Floor-to-ceiling sliding, stacking doors maximise space and promote a seamless flow between the home’s interior and exterior, while flush flooring links the internal timber floor with the external timber deck.
