The windows are the perfect convergence of sleek frames and expansive glazing surfaces that provide maximum light through 7 foot high openings, while maintaining the highest standards in energy efficiency and acoustic attenuation. In consultation with expert acoustical consultant, Cerami & Amp: Associates, these architectural windows were custom designed through a rigorous 1 year study and design process.
Sound samplings recorded at 78 Amity Street were incorporated in their state-of-the-art sound isolation booths and tested with a multitude of window assemblies to arrive at the best window, specifically for The Cobble Hill House location. Engineered and manufactured in Europe, IKON Windows used the highest grade glass to deliver the best performance windows to meet the acoustic requirements. The final products were tested by Intertek, internationally recognized and trusted quality and safety assurance experts, and passed the highest level air infiltration tests, which exceeded all New York City energy, thermal, moisture and acoustical code requirements and standards.
Sleek and durable window frames utilize high-end extrusions and hardware that allow for more expansive glass surfaces without adding bulk from additional metal. From the inside, the hidden sash and thin frames provide a minimal design and allow for a feeling of floor-to-ceiling wall of glass. From the outside, the large “parlor” windows perfectly complement the classic Cobble Hill brick façade. Every detail including the use of tilt-and-turn windows, a multi-point locking system, hidden hinges to ensure the uniform look between operable and fixed windows, down to the ease of cleaning was thoughtfully considered. With the window placed in “turn position”, you can safely clean the exterior of your window from inside your home.
