Through the Looking Glass: The Art of Selecting Windows for Interior Design

Choosing the right window plays a significant role in determining a space's overall aesthetic appeal. Windows can either enhance or detract from the design style and ambience you're trying to achieve. The type of window you choose can also impact the functionality and comfort of your space. Properly sized and positioned windows can optimise natural light, ventilation, and views, making your interiors feel more spacious, airy, and inviting.

Windows from Fenesta and Tostem have become indispensable elements in our Creative Director, Devika Khosla’s design toolkit.

Fenesta and Tostem have emerged as frontrunners in the dynamic realm of architectural design, revolutionising our approach to windows with their cutting-edge aluminium and uPVC offerings.

Versatility in Modern Aesthetics

Aluminium windows, showcased in projects like Casa K and Terra, embody modern sophistication. Their versatility enables them to adapt effortlessly to diverse architectural styles, be it the sleek lines of a contemporary structure or the timeless charm of a more traditional design. The aesthetic appeal of these windows goes hand in hand with their robust nature, offering visual delight and structural integrity.

Fenesta and Tostem's commitment to customisation provides architects and designers with a valuable tool to tailor windows to specific project requirements. The ability to seamlessly integrate these windows into diverse spaces, ensuring perfect harmony with the overall design language, underscores their versatility. This flexibility empowers designers to meet a project's functional needs and enhance its aesthetic appeal, contributing to a holistic and cohesive design vision.

Functional Durable Facades

On the flip side, uPVC windows are silent protectors, as witnessed in projects such as Treetops and Ridge View. Beyond their aesthetic contribution, these windows provide superior noise insulation, creating a serene interior environment shielded from external disturbances. Moreover, their exceptional weather resilience ensures they stand as stalwart guardians against the elements, enhancing the durability and reliability of the structures they grace.

Low maintenance is a defining characteristic of both aluminium and uPVC windows. The weather-resistant properties of uPVC ensure that these windows retain their pristine appearance over time, resisting the wear and tear inflicted by the elements. Similarly, the corrosion-resistant nature of aluminium adds to its longevity, making it a material that not only withstands the test of time but also maintains its original allure. This attribute is particularly significant in architectural projects where durability and minimal upkeep are paramount.

Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

One remarkable feature of aluminium and uPVC windows is their commendable energy efficiency. This aligns seamlessly with the contemporary commitment to sustainability and environmental consciousness. By significantly reducing the reliance on artificial heating or cooling mechanisms, these windows contribute to creating eco-friendly spaces that are aesthetically pleasing and environmentally responsible.

Overall, these windows from Fenesta and Tostem transcend the conventional role of windows, evolving into design statements that perfectly harmonise elegance, sustainability, and functionality. As we continue to explore innovative solutions, these windows stand as a testament to the transformative power of marrying style with substance.

Selecting windows that align with your design preferences and lifestyle can contribute to your overall satisfaction and well-being in your home. Whether you prioritise aesthetics, functionality, energy efficiency, or a combination of factors, choosing the right windows can enhance both the visual appeal and livability of your interiors, creating a space that feels comfortable, welcoming, and uniquely yours.
