For the second year running, Witham-based Crittall Windows has had one of its iconic steel framed windows featured at a Silver Gilt Medal winning show garden, at this May’s world-famous RHS Chelsea Garden Show.
A Crittall Corporate W20 window, glazed using glass created by artist Wendy Newhofer, was a distinctive feature in the Warner’s Distillery Garden, designed by Helen Elks-Smith and built by Bowles and Wyer, and which won the prestigious Silver Gilt Medal.
The RHS explains: “This sheltered garden provides a relaxed space for socialising and engaging with family and friends. Central to the design is an impressive sheltered courtyard referencing the pastoral setting of Falls Farm,
the heart of Warner’s Gin Distillery in rural Northamptonshire.”
The show garden’s designer Helen Elke-Smith comments:
“We were looking for a window which reflects and complement our design for The Warner’s Distillery Garden, We found that Crittall windows suited this style well.
“We love the lightness of the design which contrasts well with the stronger elements within the garden, referencing modern design aesthetics, but with a nod to the earlier, mid-20th Century modern movement.”
At last year’s show, a minimalist style Crittall window was a striking feature in Hay Joung Hwang’s ‘Eco-City garden, which also was a winner of the Silver Gilt Medal.
Designed with modern living in mind, Crittall Windows’ doors and screens provide a sense of space, light, understated beauty, clean lines, subtle detailing and excellent technical properties. The window this year for the
garden sponsored by Warner’s Distillery, was supplied and installed by Crittall.
