Close House, is a listed former mansion house set in the grounds of a luxury golf club in Newcastle upon Tyne. Since 2000 it operated as a hotel and wedding venue before being transformed into a family home.

This project focused on the Garden Room. Attention to detail was imperative with the challenge to install the blinds as discreetly as possible. Recess and custom coloured profiles were specified to enable the skylight systems SG 2195 to fit close to the walls and minimise light ingress. Colorama 2 fabric was selected as the wide colour range allowed a fabric to be chosen that could bend in seamlessly with the interior decor.

The electric side window and doors were fitted with motorised roller blinds and are operated by the Silent Gliss remote control system. They were installed in a recessed channel up above the ceiling level to ensure the blinds were hidden when not in use.
