We recently fitted Shutterway units that were combined with a security shutters installation at an interesting project: a cottage renovation on a farm in the Southern Peninsula of Cape Town.
Renovation Of An Old Labourers Cottage
Set deep in the vineyards, this old labourers cottage is completely off the grid and makes use of solar power. Original stonework makes up the facade on most of the exterior, and old railway sleepers have been used as lintels. Areas of accented original exposed brickwork in the interior combine with fine finishes, complementing the original rustic character of the cottage with more modern elements.
Wooden flooring has been used in the bedroom areas, with concrete screeds in the living areas, bathrooms and kitchen.
Sentimental & Tasteful Finishes
The owner decided to incorporate sentimental aspects and reclaimed elements in the renovation. One example is the support beam in the living room. The beam is made of timber from a tree that the owner’s grandfather planted on the property.
Shutterway Combined with Security Shutters
The security of a property can often come as an afterthought, and may often be considered as a grudge purchase. With Shutterway and Security Shutters, this no longer has to be the case.
To keep this stylish property safe without affecting the aesthetics, a combined installation of Shutterway and Security Shutters were done on the window and door openings.
The fixed louvre design of the Shutterway units is the perfect match to compliment the security shutters. The latter is an adjustable louvre security shutter, which acts as both security and screening or light control. The Shutterway units are purely for security purposes in an elegant and timeless design that suits any opening, from a rustic farm cottage to your more modern minimalist designs.
