Clifftown Shore, new luxury residential apartment scheme in Southend-on-Sea uses a fenestration package from Senior Architectural Systems to add modern performance standards to a classic Art Deco design.
Taking inspiration from the style of the neighbouring buildings, the undulating ‘waves’ of the white concrete framed building have been further accentuated by the curved installation and slim sightlines of Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system.
The views from the individual apartments have been framed using Senior’s patented PURe tilt and turn aluminium windows, with PURe SLIDE aluminium doors providing access to the outdoor terraces. The thermal efficiency achieved by Senior’s PURe aluminium system has been further enhanced with the use of energy-efficient triple glazing.
The main entrance to the development features Senior’s aluminium PURe Commercial Doors. As well as contributing to a more energy-efficient building envelope, the use of the PURe system also offers improved acoustic performance.
Owing to the coastal location of the development, Senior’s aluminium fenestration systems were powder-coated in marine grade Matt Black to offer additional protection from the elements and provide a contrast with the white building design. The installation of aluminium brise soleil, also powder-coated to match the aluminium windows, will provide solar shading and protection against solar gain.
Designed by LAP Architects and built by Cura Construction, all of Senior’s aluminium fenestration solutions were fabricated and installed by supply chain partner Glass & General.
