An installation from Sternfenster in Shingle Bay, Kent

A gorgeous coastline installation using SMART aluminium

Published 21st February 2019 by Sternfenster Categories: Updates

A Stunning Installation in Shingle Bay with Sternfenster

Sternfenster are incredibly proud to show off an installation conducted in Shingle Bay, in Hythe in Kent. The eventual project resulted in six gorgeous apartments – including two penthouses – right on the seafront.

Conducted by a member of Sternfenster’s Approved Installer Network, Omega Home Improvements, the installation includes our stunning aluminium windows and patio doors.

We offer the SMART aluminium profile system, a market leading product for our installers across the country. These aluminium patio doors come with a slimmer profile to uPVC counterparts, which in turn allowed us to use the maximum amount of double glazing with the eventual product.

The final result for the residents of these six apartments is an unrestricted view of the gorgeous Shingle Bay seafront. The patio doors are also a space saving home improvement, due to their concealed sliding mechanisms.

Residents of the new build will enjoy stunning, unobstructed views of the Shingle Bay coastline.

Superbly Designed Windows

As one of Sternfenster’s approved installers, Omega Home Improvements used our beautiful aluminium windows for the project in Kent.

Much like the patio doors, these aluminium windows allow the maximum amount of natural light to enter the property, thanks to a slimmer frame in comparison to uPVC or timber alternatives. The use of these window frames allows the residents of the new build in Hythe to enjoy the stunning views on show at the shoreline.

What’s more, the apartments in this installation will deliver a fantastic level of thermal efficiency and home security. Our aluminium window frames here at Sternfenster offer great thermal retention and include a range of safety features.  Total peace of mind for the new residents at Shingle Bay.

Perfectly Suiting Their Surroundings

In addition to working with Omega, the project also featured the award winning work of an architect and a team of developers as well, in order to make sure the final installation was fitting to its surroundings. Located next to the famous fishmonger’s Griggs on the corner of St. Lennard’s road, the apartments sit right in the heart of Shingle Bay.

These new build apartments perfectly balance modern home improvements with the architectural feel of the area around Shingle Beach. As a result, the final product is a stunning set of apartments which capture the feel of the region with an upmarket twist.

The stunning white finish allows the new build to blend with the décor of its surroundings effortlessly. The aluminium used in the Sternfenster windows and patio doors can match any style of property, be it modern or traditional.
