The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea became one of over 30 planning authorities to feature our slimline double glazing on conservation properties or listed buildings*, when we helped restore The Old Post Office building, in a conservation area of Notting Hill, with our exact-match timber sash windows, featuring slimline double glazing which looks just like single glazing.
The conservation property was part of a Victorian terraced row on one of London’s most attractive and sought after roads, made famous by the film ‘Notting Hill’, so it was vital that the replacement sash windows and double front doors were in keeping with the classic Georgian and Victorian architecture of the area.
We fitted our handmade ‘Conservation Range’ sash windows, which are designed to meet the planning criteria of conservation areas, with an array of bespoke options including slimline double glazing and slender, exact-match profile sections, mouldings and glazing bars. For both the sash windows and double front doors, we used a very stable, thermally efficient timber, Accoya, which doesn’t swell or warp.
On the ground floor, a new shop front was fitted to give a simple, elegant look in keeping with the chic, bustling local environment.
As specialists in timber windows and doors for period, conservation and listed properties, at Timbawood we have successfully fitted slimline double glazing on properties in conservation areas and listed buildings in over 30 unique planning authorities including Westminster, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea and Greenwich. Whether it’s sash windows, casement windows, french doors, front doors, fire doors or bifold doors, please get in touch if you’d like advice on your property from one of our experts, or to request a free quote or survey.

*Please contact your local planning officer before carrying out any works on listed or conservation properties. Each property is judged on a case by case basis depending on the condition and type of the windows/doors, and the nature of the proposed works.
