You want window boxes on the front of your old house on a St Albans street with 100s of years of history – it probably makes sense to keep things pretty simple.
Peter combined simple wooden boards, angles metal and hand forged angled holding straps to craft four window boxes that a gracing and enhancing the frontage of a St Albans home – and hopefully adding something to the whole street.
Peter worked with the home owners to develop the simple design – they were fans of simplicity, maybe with a thought to quotes like the Germany / American architect Mies van der Rohe’s quote ‘less is more’.
When the windowboes had been screwed together and painted Peter installed the four boxes, with the metalworked straps holding them in place.
