NEW FOR OLD
SEPTEMBER 7TH 2017

Once a farmhouse, this large family house in Yorkshire has undergone many changes in its time. One of its most significant transformations was an Edwardian extension, to which a period-style wooden conservatory was added about twenty years ago.

The current owners, who’ve lived in the house for fifteen years, decided to update not only the look of the house but also the way it flows.  At the heart of the project was the demolition of the original wooden conservatory, which they found chilly in winter and over-hot in summer, replacing it with a spectacular high-performance glass building designed and built by The Caulfield Company.

Linking the main house to a new pool house (formerly a barn) this double-volume building has a powerful architectural presence. It creates a multi-purpose family living space with dramatic views over open countryside and into an internal garden courtyard at the back.  

At the heart of The Caulfield Company’s designs are pioneering roof and door systems which offer not only the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values (up to Passivhaus requirements) but also the ability to create spectacular structures like this.  

The interior climate is comfortable year-round, controlled through the built-in weather station which monitors both the temperature and the angle of the sun, automatically raising and lowering the awnings to prevent heat build-up and glare. 



Bi-fold doors allow the entire building to open into the garden, with the inside/outside feel heightened by running the same stone flooring through from the living space out onto the terrace.

Entirely bespoke, the structure is all aluminium, designed by The Caulfield Company and built to order in Germany. 7.2 metres wide and 5 metres deep, it also has a 4 metres x 2 metres link into the pool house.  The roof’s dramatic reverse pitch has sight lines designed to create a strong visual connection with the existing buildings.  This is a key consideration when combining period and modern architecture.
NEW CHESHIRE SHOWROOM OPENING JULY 2017
JULY 10TH 2017

Founded in Harrogate, The Caulfield Company builds state-of-the art intelligent modern glass buildings. Its bespoke designs combine the pleasures of indoor/outdoor living with thermal performance and automation designed to make the very most of the unpredictable British climate.   

This July, The Caulfield Company opens in Wilmslow. Occupying a flagship 5500 sq ft site on the Manchester Road, it showcases inspirational glass buildings set in an expansive decked garden. The buildings themselves range from a stone clad modern orangery to an atrium-style garden room and a contemporary conservatory matching an aluminium exterior with a solid oak interior. 

The Wilmslow showroom also showcases the remarkable ‘Cero’ architectural glazing concept, with ultra-slim triple glazed doors available up to a towering 6 metres tall and remotely operated. Remote control is just one of many specialist systems which The Caulfield Company can incorporate into its buildings, including automated shading and temperature controls operated through built-in weather stations. 

Inside the buildings are a series of beautifully furnished living spaces. The Caulfield Company handles projects right through from planning permission to the design, build and interior finishes and offers a complete interior design service including bespoke joinery, integrated entertainment systems, natural stone floors and contemporary designer furniture from names such as Rolf Benz.  All of these are on show, together with luxury outdoor living products including Markilux automated awnings and the Millboard decking and Norstone natural stone cladding used to create the sleek landscaping.  

The Wilmslow showroom is also the UK’s largest showcase for Solarlux, the German company which manufactures high-tech door and window systems for The Caulfield Company and for leading architects including Norman Foster. The Caulfield Company’s team of architects and craftsmen design and build glass buildings all over the world. 

Showrooms 
The Caulfield Company also has two showrooms in Harrogate: one showing glass buildings, control systems and contemporary furniture and a second showing revolutionary Internorm window and door systems. 
THE GEORGIAN VICARAGE
JUNE 12TH 2017

This traditional conservatory was designed, handmade and installed by The Caulfield Company. It replaces a long-lost glasshouse, the outline of which could still be seen on the outside wall of this beautiful Grade II Listed Georgian vicarage in Hertfordshire.
 
No other reference to the original glass structure could be found, but Mark Caulfield of The Caulfield Company has long experience of reinstating period glass buildings, taking his design cues from the vicarage and from glass structures of the same period. Perfectly in keeping with the Georgian house, this new conservatory features small panel windows with very slender glazing bars. It has an imposing roofline, featuring gothic-inspired gables.  The plinth is in reclaimed brick, carefully matched to the house.
 
The scheme was submitted for planning permission/Listed Building Consent. Once the plans were approved, the conservatory was hand built in The Caulfield Company’s Yorkshire workshops using solid Sapele hardwood. Its functionality was also kept true to the original glasshouse; eschewing mod cons such as underfloor heating in favour of more traditional heating (radiators in grilled housings) and manually crank-handled roof vents. Climate control is much better than in the original building though, as special glazing methods were used to double glaze the finely detailed Georgian windows.
 
Highly experienced in sensitive architectural responses to period and listed buildings, The Caulfield Company handles projects right through from planning permission to the design, build and interior finishes. It also offers a complete interior design service.  
THE CONTEMPORARY ORANGERY
MAY 10TH 2017

Orangeries have come of age, transforming this most traditional of glass buildings into bright, light, intelligent living spaces.

Unlike conservatories, which have fully glazed roofs, orangeries traditionally have a solid roof with an inset glass lantern light. This concept translates elegantly into modern architecture, especially with The Caulfield Company’s design expertise and high-tech glazing systems; using architectural solutions from commercial buildings to create new building technologies for homes. 

Shown here: This bespoke contemporary orangery uses two technologically advanced systems, a triple glazed ‘Azkent’ roof and remarkable ‘Cero’ glass doors, which combine the look of glass curtain walling with the functionality of sliding doors. Minimal framing, with vertical mullions just 34mm thick, gives uninterrupted views to the garden beyond. Noise cancelling technology, remote control and locking alarms all add to the functionality and pleasure of living in this space.

Made to order, Cero doors are unique in being available up to a towering 6 metres in height and 4 metres wide, offering moveable floor to ceiling glazing. They can be either double or triple glazed, with the triple glazing option taking the glass up to Passivhaus standards (0.8U value) adding great insulation to new or existing buildings. 

Mark Caulfield and his team of architects and craftsmen undertake projects all over the world, handling projects right through from planning permission to the design, build and interior finishes. The Caulfield Company also offers a complete interior design service including bespoke joinery made in its own workshops, integrated entertainment systems, timber and stone floors and contemporary furniture. 
AN HISTORIC FOOTPRINT
APRIL 19TH 2017


This traditional conservatory was designed, handmade and installed by The Caulfield Company and sits within the walled garden of a 19th Century Grade II Listed castle, deep in the Yorkshire Dales. 

Commissioned to replace a long-derelict Victorian greenhouse, occupying the same footprint, it was built in The Caulfield Company’s Yorkshire workshops in solid Sapele hardwood and painted in a soft green finish. Creating a garden room sanctuary, it lies at the heart of a major restoration project which has brought new life to the garden.

PERFECTLY PROPORTIONED
MARCH 21ST 2017


This traditional conservatory was designed, handmade and installed by The Caulfield Company. Built in their Yorkshire workshops in solid Sapele hardwood with maintenance free cappings, it is painted in a soft white finish which perfectly suits the well-established garden.

Situated within the City of York, the location is a fine, detached Victorian villa. Mark Caulfield designed this bespoke conservatory to integrate seamlessly with the house, with proportions and architectural details such as the roof pitch, reclaimed brick plinth and arch-topped windows perfectly matched to the original building.  

One wall of the conservatory is built in the same reclaimed brick, giving privacy and creating a boundary with the house next door. The brick is left raw on the inside, used as a decorative finish. The roof elevation on that side is also solid, enhancing privacy and helping maintain the interior climate in this traditional structure. All of the glass is double glazed for comfort, security and noise control.



The glazed elevations have traditional top hung sashes, echoing the style of a Victorian greenhouse. This theme is repeated in the manually operated roof vents - again a typical feature of 19th Century plant houses. The solid English oak floor and window box seating (which conceals radiators) were also made by The Caulfield Company.

NEW - GLASS DOORS UP TO 6 METRES HIGH
MARCH 2ND 2017

Architectural solutions from commercial buildings offer next-generation building technologies for our homes. Solarlux ‘Cero’ glass door systems from The Caulfield Company are a perfect example of this high-tech crossover. 

Combining the scale of glass curtain walling with the functionality of sliding doors, Cero systems have minimal framing, with vertical mullions just 34mm thick giving uninterrupted views and a modern architectural finish. Remote control and a wide range of safety and security features add to the functionality.

Super-Tall:  Doors up to 6 metres high in a single piece of glass
Made to order, Cero doors are unique in being available up to a towering 6 metres in height and 4 metres wide, offering moveable floor to ceiling glazing (as shown in image). Matching fixed glass panels can be up to 15 metres square.  This makes it much easier to replace brick elevations with glass in renovation projects and - in new builds or extensions - allows the design to feature much larger areas of glass. 

Super Eco:  To Passivhaus standards   
Cero glass systems are available either double or triple glazed. The triple glazed option takes the glass up to Passivhaus standards (0.8U value) adding great insulation to new or existing buildings. High-tech glazing options go hand in hand with noise cancelling technology, which adds to the pleasure of living with large areas of glass.

Super Secure:  Advanced Security 
In addition to the quality of the glass itself, Cero systems offer a wide range of security features including locking alarms and damage sensors. Certified up to the anti-burglar standard RC2, they can also be fully integrated into a master security system.
FREESTANDING GARDEN PAVILION
FEBRUARY 1ST 2017

 
Making the most of the British climate, this freestanding pavilion by The Caulfield Company brings a contemporary architectural note to a tranquil Japanese-inspired garden in Devon. Specifically designed with special thermal glass systems which allow it to be used throughout the year, the pavilion offers a calm environment of light and space overlooking a traditional koi carp pond.  It’s a place for peaceful contemplation and relaxation, untroubled by the temperature outside.
BI-FOLD DOORS FOR SEAMLESS LIVING
JANUARY 10TH 2017

 
Bi-fold doors are the architectural way to achieve an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, allowing entire walls to simply fold away. Perfect for the changeable British climate, they offer real flexibility and a seamless flow between house and garden. 

The Caulfield Company specialises in intelligent, contemporary glass buildings including state of the art bi-fold door systems with high-performance glass. Precision built for both thermal and noise cancelling qualities, the collection includes double and triple glazed doors, available with specifications right up to Passivhaus standard. The construction can be all-aluminium or aluminium interior with timber exterior and doors can be made up to a massive 6 metres tall. 

Highly engineered, with special ball bearing carriage, these bi-folds are extremely smooth and easy to open/close, and when open the folded doors occupy a very small space. They can also link with each other for added security and carry the “Secure by Design” certification.



Images show examples of extra-large bi-fold doors which fold smoothly away to allow maximum flow between inside and out. The large areas of high thermal performance glass allows rooms to feel light and airy year-round and warm even in the middle of winter.
AT HOME IN THE DALES
JANUARY 5TH 2017

Renowned for its graceful glazed buildings, The Caulfield Company is one of Britain’s leading conservatory designers and makers, with an exceptional reputation for working on heritage projects and many other listed and period buildings.  

Their bespoke designs are built by hand, in the traditional way, in the company’s own joinery workshops in Yorkshire, using durable hardwoods designed to stand the test of time. The Caulfield Company is also especially skilled in ‘invisibly’ incorporating double glazing into period conservatory designs, using the slim glazing bars which conservation departments require. 



This traditional conservatory was built for a village house in the Yorkshire Dales. Designed and situated to make the most of the classic walled garden, it is handmade from solid Sapele hardwood with maintenance-free aluminium cappings. Painted a soft green, it blends sympathetically with the lush garden surroundings and the old stone of the house.

Although traditional in concept, this conservatory has many modern advantages including underfloor heating and electrically operated, thermostatically controlled roof vents that open and close automatically for perfect temperature control.
BRINGING THE OUTDOORS INDOORS
SEPTEMBER 27TH 2016

Now available from The Caulfield Company, CoeLux® is an extraordinary hi-tech Italian system which brings virtual sunlight into basements and other dark areas.  

Indistinguishable from natural daylight, it uses advanced LED technology to reproduce sunlight’s spectrum, together with sophisticated optical systems and nanostructured materials which create the optical ‘scattering’ effect which occurs in the atmosphere. This gives a wholly realistic impression of an infinite blue sky above with sunlight flooding down through a virtual skylight or window.

Sharp blue toned shadows complete the effect, transforming dark and dingy areas into fully useable rooms apparently illuminated by Mediterranean sunlight. There’s another great benefit to CoeLux® systems, in the known feeling of wellbeing which people experience from living or working in full spectrum light.  

The complete CoeLux® range of virtual windows and skylights is available from The Caulfield Company.  The CoeLux® system can be seen in action at The Caulfield Company’s new Cheshire showroom which opens in Wilmslow in October 2016.  
MOVING THE THRESHOLD
AUGUST 3RD 2016


High-tech, bespoke glass buildings from The Caulfield Company combine all the pleasures of indoor/outdoor living with state-of-the-art thermal performance. Automated shading and temperature control are operated through built-in weather stations for perfect climate control. This is tried and tested intelligent technology, widely used in commercial buildings and now being applied to domestic projects from garden room extensions to modern conservatories and freestanding glass pavilions.

Shown Here: Set within a large garden, this large family house originally had limited access to the garden, making the two spaces feel separate. As part of a total refurbishment, The Caulfield Company was asked to open up the back of the house with a large glass extension creating space for an airy new open plan kitchen, dining and living room all flowing directly into the garden.  

The Caulfield Company completely removed one corner of the house, replacing it with a dramatic contemporary L-shaped glass building. Built-in climate control makes it comfortable to live in night and day, all year round. 



As another element of the refurbishment, The Caulfield Company was asked to carry the style of the new glass building through the whole of the house’s rear elevation. To create this cohesive look, they replaced the windows on three storeys and created a new set of large bi-folding doors to the right of the extension, opening up the original living room to the new terrace. 



At the heart of The Caulfield Company’s designs are pioneering roof and door systems which offer not only the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values (up to Passivhaus requirements) but also the ability to create spectacular structures

The Caulfield Company handles projects right through from planning permission to the design, build and interior finishes. It also offers a complete interior design service including bespoke joinery made in its own workshops, integrated entertainment systems, timber and stone floors and contemporary furniture from leading names including Rolf Benz, Draenart and Asco.  Mark Caulfield and his team of architects and craftsmen undertake projects all over the world.

KITCHENS UNDER GLASS
JUNE 27TH 2016


Glass is the perfect material for kitchens, bringing light into the space and creating a flow between house and garden. The Caulfield Company’s intelligent, intensely modern glass buildings combine the pleasures of indoor/outdoor living with state-of-the-art thermal performance and automated climate control, creating inspiring living spaces that are bright and comfortable all year round.



At the heart of the bespoke designs are pioneering roof and door systems built for The Caulfield Company by the same company which fabricates for architects such as Norman Foster. Technically these systems offer the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values (up to Passivhaus) and the ability to create spectacular structures… including designs where the doors fold entirely away, leaving no beams or columns to interrupt sightlines.
GARDEN PAVILIONS AND SUMMERHOUSES
MAY 3RD 2016

INDOOR/OUTDOOR LIVING
APRIL 25TH 2016

 
High-tech, bespoke glass buildings from The Caulfield Company combine the pleasures of indoor/outdoor living with state-of-the-art thermal performance. Automated shading and temperature control are operated through built-in weather stations for perfect climate control. This is tried and tested intelligent technology, widely used in commercial buildings and now being applied to domestic projects from garden room extensions to modern conservatories and freestanding glass pavilions.

At the heart of The Caulfield Company’s designs are pioneering roof and door systems which offer not only the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values (up to Passivhaus requirements) but also the ability to create spectacular structures.



Shown here: A custom built garden room designed to be used all year round, winter and summer, as living/dining/family space. The roof, walls and bi-fold doors are double glazed and thermally broken (a barrier between the inside and outside frames which prevents heat loss) for optimum insulation. State of the art aluminium construction gives the building strength, whilst still remaining graceful. A built in automatic weather station controls an externally mounted awning and electronic roof vents, opening and closing them in response to weather conditions.  Far more effective than internal shading, the external awning acts as a physical barrier to heat entering the building, making it just as comfortable on a hot summer day as in the depths of winter.
