Welcome to Inwido village
Here you can learn how some families and businesses reflected on and decided which windows and doors they would choose for their homes and projects.
The Nørgaard Family
builds a new home
When the Nørgaard family decided to build a new house, one thing was especially important - the windows. They had to be stylish, functional and maintenance-free. Their previous house had mahogany windows that needed treatment twice a year. The windows of the new house are aluminium clad on the outside and don’t require regular maintenance. On the inside, the painted wood surface gives exactly the feeling the family wanted.
The Nowaks replace
Before renovating their new home, the Nowaks studied the windows and glazed doors to see what needed done. Some windows were in too poor condition to be renovated, others just didn’t fit the style of the house, being made from PVC. The couple decided to replace all windows with new ones that had a light wooden frame. They were more in line with the design of the house and significantly improved energy efficiency compared to the old windows.
The Lindberg family's
dream come true
By chance, the Lindberg Family found a beautiful plot of land in a hilly area of dense pine forest. An architect was challenged to design a home that would blend with the surrounding nature. The result, a spectacular wooden house with large windows that gave a sense of being part of the forest. The Lindbergs chose exclusive, customised wood-frame windows which suited the design of the house and blended with the surrounding nature.
The Karonen family
rebuild their house
After inheriting a summer house, the Karonen family decided to rebuild it to make it suitable for winter living. They replaced most of the wooden facade which had taken a beating from the moist sea winds. They insulated the walls and roof, replaced most of the interior and re-painted. And to round off, they replaced all the windows and doors. With more energy-effective windows and doors, they could now enjoy comfort on cold winter weekends, be assured that their house was draft-free and keep their energy bill comfortably low.
- The light and the rough
A virtue has been made out of the contrast between new and old in the building extensions at Holstebro Gymnasium.
Three glass buildings have been added within the existing structural framework with new functions and facilities built with respect for the original structure.
The main building’s two storeys in glass were designed as a shining landmark, a picture of Western Jutlandic education and culture.
The choice of wooden support columns, white concrete and glass facades adds lightness to the existing rough structure.
