The Project


Comprising of ten detached houses and 25 apartments overlooking Highbury Fields Conservation Area, Highbury Crescent represents the single most prestigious residential development in North London today.


The Challenge


Soundcraft contacted Timbmet when tasked with supplying extra large window shutters, which would be both sympathetic to the building design and would feature aesthetic internal and external faces.


Our Solution


Working with joinery contractor Soundcraft, Timbmet recommended Iroko TEC panels as the ideal choice for the development, specified with 28mm PUR foam core for its superior insulation and acoustic properties.


TEC Iroko was specified for the stiles and rails in both sliding doors and French doors and in the window casements to provide structural stability.  It was complemented by matching window frame sills and beading in solid Iroko.  On the inside, TEC Oak was employed for the stair treads and mopstick handrails, perfectly matching the external doors and frames.


To address the issue of colour continuity, Timbmet purchased a single shipment of Iroko especially for the entire project to ensure consistent colour matching throughout the build.  All Iroko wood used on the project was sourced through Timbmet’s Verified Progress scheme traceable to legally harvested forests.  As an added bonus, Iroko’s natural weathering meant that no artificial coating or finishing was required.
