Heritage Design for 21st Century Living

The design brief for The Residence Collection was to extract the key principles, shapes and dimensions from Article 4 directions for windows, and integrate market leading technology into the design using virtually maintenance free materials; your windows and doors won’t warp, swell, flake or need sanding and painting, ever! The Residence Collection offers a suite of thermally and acoustically superior window and door systems, featuring the latest security, maintenance and performance innovations, whilst still appearing traditional. A beautiful addition to your home.

What are Article 4 Directives and do they apply to my home?

Article 4 directions are made by the local planning authority, and this can affect you when installing windows in your home. They restrict the scope of permitted development rights, either in relation to a particular area or site, or a particular type of development anywhere in the authority’s area. Article 4 directions are used to control works that could threaten the character and architectural merit of an area or building of acknowledged importance. This means that new windows and doors may need planning permission. Windows are the defining feature and focal point of any building and the type of window installed can improve or completely ruin the look of a building, which is important in conservation areas or listed buildings.

What is a Conservation Area?

An area “of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”. Many of our towns, villages and cities rely on correctly specified windows for much of their architectural impact and character. Inappropriate, poor quality replacement windows can easily erode traditional features on historic buildings.

What is a Listed Building?

Listing is not a preservation order, preventing change. It does not freeze a building in time, it simply means that listed building consent must be applied for in order to make any changes to that building, which might affect its special interest. It’s there to protect the aesthetic of that building.

How does The Residence Collection fit into this?

A more modern approach has been for planning authorities to approve the use of The Residence Collection in conservation areas because of its authentic design. It has been specifically designed to aesthetically replicate the documented historical window designs from the 19th Century period and therefore has been approved for use in many areas across the UK. The Residence Collection has also been fitted in many listed buildings, however the local authority uses listed building consent to make decisions that balance the site’s historic significance against other issues, such as its function, condition or viability. With listed building consent it is not always just about the aesthetic, it can sometimes be about the material choices too.

The importance of Planning Permission

You should always obtain planning permission from the Local Planning Authority before commencing work, Creating Spaces can help you with this process, our team have access to specialists at the residence collection who have successfully worked with numerous local authority planning departments to help the process and allow these modern replication products to be installed in a listed property. Please speak to our team for further details and help in getting this product fitted to your beautiful home.
