A Grand Design for Kestrel Aluminium Systems

Tucked away on the outskirts of Brigg, Lincolnshire is Scawby Brook, a carbon neutral, sustainable house created to blend into the surrounding woodland setting.


Designed by local architect Kate Kelly, the house was specified with many windows and doors to let light flood into the property, reflecting the natural environment and providing the best possible views of the rural landscape.


Windows and doors from Kestrel Aluminium Systems provide a complete glazing solution for the modern building. The windows are a mixture of fixed or opening vents, with multi-point espagnolette locking, PAS24-compliant security to keep the occupants safe and secure. Used in conjunction with low U-value double-glazed units that achieve a low U-Value of 1.2W/m2K, they ensure the building is safe, secure and energy efficient.


sustainable housing

Part of the house is elevated on stilts so that it sits within the trees, with a bridge separating the living and sleeping quarters. This has been glazed with 2,200mm high units inset with top-hung casement windows to maximise light and give stunning views of the surrounding woodland. The adjacent rooms have matching tall, fixed corner windows that let light flood into the building from every direction.


Installed on the first floor are double French doors which a private roof terrace. All units use the same profiles and hardware to ensure a seamless, common aesthetic throughout the building.


All windows were powder coated in Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) at Kestrel’s powder coating facility in Birmingham. The manufacture and installation of the systems was undertaken by Fabrique Specialist Glazing Systems of Grimsby.
