Oriel windows are a popular addition to commercial buildings and for good reason. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing but they offer solutions to some common practical planning obstacles too.

Oriel windows are popular in leisure centres, cafes, hotels, libraries and shops because they encourage visitors to stay longer by providing them with a welcoming space to sit, enjoy and relax. They are a great contemporary addition to modern and older buildings alike. In fact, many architects are combining the old with the new and creating oriel windows that contrast with older, more traditional looking structures to create beautiful, unique designs.

Planning restrictions are a common obstacle for contractors to overcome and oriel windows are an ideal solution to these kinds of limitations – especially when it’s something such as overlooking a neighbouring plot. Here, you can close off one side of a triangular oriel so the open side frames the view.

Oriel windows are an excellent way to add personality and interest to your property. As well as ensuring that a huge amount of natural light is brought into the building.

  • Pre-fabricated aluminium cloaking details
  • True curved and moulded finishes
