We are delighted to share this fabulous recent project team Kloeber worked on, the Arts and Crafts house!

The owners of this beautiful home situated in central Cambridge wanted to add both light and height to their rear extension with a goal to ‘bring the outside in’. Working with a team of local architects at Ashworth Parkes, this objective was achieved through the use of sliding doors and a series of rooflights.

“We wanted to replace pre-existing French windows which had heavy glazing bars, to admit more light and to ‘bring the outside in’ to our new living space which has been 100% successful!”

After a visit to our Cambridgeshire based Huntingdon showroom, it was our aluminium ÜberSlide sliding doors that came out on top and were selected as the doors of choice.

With the house surrounded by impressive neighbouring trees, our sliding doors which boast super slim sightlines have proven to be the perfect solution for integrating the home and garden. In fact, the minimal ‘barely-there’ frame of this design played a big role in why this glazing product was chosen…

“We chose Kloeber because the doors looked sleek and beautiful, with very narrow profile sightlines and no visible handles, and they were also relatively cost effective. They work very smoothly and we’re delighted with them overall. We were concerned that they might be heavy given that they were quite wide, but we are in and out of them all the time. The push-pad switching couldn’t be easier and they are a joy to move.”

And not only this, our sliding doors are feline-friendly too…“We also liked the feature that allows them to be locked marginally open, giving access for our cat!”.


The couple’s favourite part of the project? “One of the favourite parts of our whole project was that, while the country was in lockdown, we had the very congenial company of our builders every day. Noisy at times certainly, but entertaining and thankfully they really delivered. Kloeber played a reliably efficient part in this.”

And would they recommend working with Kloeber to other homeowners? “Yes, absolutely! We thoroughly enjoy these windows every day. They frame our garden even more beautifully than we’d hoped, we love their smooth gliding operation and their minimal design”

A big thank you to our lovely customers for taking the time to catch up with us and discuss their stunning home extension.
