Steel Windows on Trend in Design Today

Gerrit Thomas Rietveld  was a Dutch furniture designer and architect. One of the principal members of the Dutch artistic movement called “De Stijl”, Rietveld is famous for his Red and Blue Chair. He aimed for simplicity in construction and was invited by Walther Gropius to exhibit at the Bauhaus.

Ottimo Cibo

The architect’s concept was a European style slim steel frame to maximise views available from the site and to lend a light industrial feeling to the house. Integrity of materials was imperative and generally the finishes in the house suggest this as a unifying concept throughout. The result is a versatile space perfect to host an intimate celebration, whether it’s for 10 or 100 people. Ottimo Cibo will create an intimately stylish event. Each Private Dining Experience unique.
PORCHING- Main Pic - Exterior

Porching, It’s A Way Of Life

Summer is slowly making its way in, days are longer, the light is clear and energizing,and the evenings perfectly balmy. Call it what you will it’s time to start porching. You can “porch” on a “stoep”, a balcony, a sunroom or veranda. An informal place to while away summer evenings, with a beer & a book. Or spend lazy week end afternoons with a cuppa and a board game, in comfortable chairs, and maybe a dog.

Water Saving Tips from Metal Windows

At Metal Windows we pride ourselves on being eco friendly, from keeping our Kombi vans running for literally 10’s of years, to re-using 2litre cooldrink bottles to mix up our waterproofing additive mix. We use a minimum amount of water to clean windows after installation. We use grey water instead of tap water for mixing and cleaning. We stopped washing our vans, many months back, a dry wipe down is the new clean.

No organic paint coating, like that on your windows and doors, is actually “maintenance free”. This is especially true when the new products are installed in coastal areas (like the Western Cape) or areas with a high level of industrial pollution.
