My clients for this project have a window company in the UK, specialising in bi-fold doors and bespoke window systems.
The house is a typical detached village house which in this case provides a great deal of scope for opening up the interior ground floor rooms to provide a contemporary feel.
As part of this dream they want to install bi-folding windows across eighty percent of the rear wall opening onto a terrace and new in-ground swimming pool. In addition replacement aluminium windows were required and sloping/vertical combination windows to the first floor where the eaves of the property are low.
A Déclaration Préalable was required for the external alterations, and a Permis de Construire including demolition approval for the new pool and infill of the existing one.
Within 500 metres of the village church, these plans needed to be approved by the Architect de Bâtiments de France.
