A synergy between traditional and contemporary design

‘Contemporary country’ is how property developer Caroline Verity describes Kearns Village, one of the la- test developments from Skipton Properties.

Built on the site of an old mill in Yorkshire’s Rossendale Valley, this collection of luxury family homes combines traditional materials with high performance, well designed products – including VELFAC composite aluminium / timber windows and doors.

‘We first saw the VELFAC system at Eco-Build 2015 and just loved the minimal 21st century design, and high performance construction,’ says Caroline. ‘Although we wanted a very traditional look, one that fits the location and the local architectural vernacular, we didn’t want to sacrifice energy efficiency or durability, and so had to nd products which could deliver on both performance and design.’ The VELFAC system meets this demanding brief. Finished in mid-grey, the external aluminium framing is the ideal complement to the beautiful stone, while the inner timber frame also enhances the light and contemporary interior style.

‘VELFAC represents a real step up in terms of quality, window performance and design,’ says Caroline. ‘Many new build residential projects use windows which do not always enhance the lovely local stone or mirror the industrial heritage so important to the area.

At Kearns Village, slim-framed VELFAC windows, featuring thin mullions, reflect the history of the environment and thereby raise the quality of the development as a whole, and add value to each property.’

Find these windows in the second phase at Kearns Village and in all our apartments and three storey homes at Harwal Waterside, Silsden.
