Castles At Kingscliff
Window Makers, Northern Rivers, NSW

Like a lot of great ideas, Castles at Kingscliff started over a chat, a beer and a great view. Architect, Scott Carpenter, fondly remembers the day he and his client, Martin, climbed onto the roof of the original dwelling. “We sat there and we looked at the view and he said, ‘This is what I need to get back.’

Scott called a local window and door fabricator, Window Makers, to gauge if his vision could be achieved. The answer was a resounding yes. “We talk about the success of the windows in this house and the doors,” says Scott, “but it’s actually their ability to completely disappear that makes them so successful. Fifteen years ago, we were experimenting with a lot of different window companies. We then came across AWS and the Vantage system…they really are the best system going around.”
