Art and Craft combined in Vicaima Doors
Standing on a prominent corner site in the centre of Loughton, Higgins Homes’ new Artisan Apartments reflect the Arts and Crafts style of architecture that pervades the town. The building features brickwork with dogtooth detailing, gabled dormers within tiled roofs and casement windows in splayed and square bays, as well as timber and render boarding.
The Artisan Apartments comprise seven 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and one 2 bedroom duplex. The interiors are spacious and beautifully designed, using the finest fixtures and fittings throughout and reflecting the developers’ attention to detail. Vicaima’s Just White Superior internal doors with horizontal grooves have been used throughout, adding a clean and fresh look to these stunning apartments. The solid core doors were supplied as doorsets allowing quick and easy installation and include FD30 fire doors.
As well as the internal doors, Vicaima also supplied Just White Superior entrance doorsets for the development. All doors are FSC® certified, playing their part in Higgins Homes’ compliance with the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Barry Waddell, commercial director at Vicaima, says: ‘The Arts & Crafts concept behind these apartments has produced a beautiful result and the clean lines of Vicaima’s superbly crafted doors seem to sit perfectly in their surroundings.’
