Built in 2014 for a private client and designed by Martin Critchell Architects.

Waters edge is a modern villa style property erected by STREIF in East Preston, West Sussex a stones throw from the sea. The design incorporated large areas of glazing to soak up the sea views, these required window and door systems which were able to withstand all the British weather would throw at them.

STREIF supplied high performance German U-PVC units from Ideal with low U-values to ensure the glazing matched the performance of the rest of the building. This build highlights the suitability of the STRIEF closed panel system for even the most exposed sites.

The 565 m² development which was rendered externally and finished with a warm deck flat roof lined with single ply membrane went up rapidly achieving a weatherproof structure in less than six days, exactly as required given the site location.
