The Retreat

The Retreat

An exclusive location in the centre of Richmond on the site of the redeveloped print works, this is a high quality development containing 11 generous residential apartments and studio offices.

The VELFAC double glazed window system was chosen to meet the design requirement of a blend of contemporary design and classic elegance whilst offering a thermally broken composite window system to achieve an overall ‘U’ value of 1.7 and some varying and challenging acoustic values ensured  that a high level of design team coordination was required and achieved in order to deliver the project

Working with 15+mm differential live load deflection values we were able to accommodate a slip head detail to allow the required aesthetic to be achieved whilst allowing the structure to move within its design parameters.
