Protecting shuttered windows
During the renovation works carried out in the last years, windows and doors of a different material and shape have been used, which are not in line with the uniform architectural style of the estate. For this reason, the Community Association with the help of a 2010 tender financed by a Norwegian civil fund started the “Eye of the house” programme related to doors and other closing systems. In order to preserve the uniform image of the protected buildings of Wekerle and to respond to the population’s quest for modernisation, local architects developed a plan for modern doors and other closing systems.
The designs of the windows and doors with the original layout were created with the observance of special local regulations and with the participation of the competent authorities and building conservation specialists; building engineering physics, energy, environmental and quality requirements, as well as modern technical requirements were also met. With this programme, the Community Association aims to raise awareness with respect to the importance of preserving architectural values.
