Re-use in action - Copperlight windows

These sliding glazed copperlight doors are clever way to give the option of closing off and breaking up a space. Light pours in from the bright kitchen and the continuous view through the space gives greater depth yet retains a privacy in the snug.

Copper glazed windows became popular in the Edwardian era. Unlike lead windows, copper lights are very durable. This allowed for easier mass production, while still using small panes of glass. We have salvaged many windows from the upgrading of early 20th century commercial buildings and mansion blocks. 

They make beautiful internal windows, can be used to glaze doors and they make outstanding screens. More elegant and durable than windows using lead work they make excellent internal windows. They allow light flow through a space and external references such as colour, material and decorative patterns can influence the space.
