Adding functionality to antique windows
Historic style windows or futer windows are most often produced during the restoration of historical buildings in order to preserve the original authentic look, whilst also adding modern functionality. The original window design will remain the same as it was intended by its craftsman decades (or even hundreds of years) ago, however, they will be made more convenient, and ergonomic, with improved sound and heat insulation.
To ensure that the tone of the windows is as close to the original as possible, they can be painted with linseed-based colours or treated with wood stain. We have produced futer windows for historical buildings all across Latvia and the rest of Europe, however, the roots of our experience come from producing windows for buildings in our historical hometown Kuldiga, which has rigid rules and regulations for preserving the authentic look of the town.
