The original steel and bronze windows of the 30’s
FerroFinestra®, literally meaning “window iron”, stands for an accurate selection of original hot rolled steel and extruded architectural bronze window and door profiles.
Steel windows have been, and still are, the preferred choice of architects. Especially when their function is not to close a hole in a wall but a significant contribution to the character and overall appearance of a building. The minimalist aesthetics of solid hot rolled steel profiles and their ability to shape windows is unique. Their slender lines appear to lose weight and give lightness to the frames, emphasizing the transparency of a façade. This elegance is difficult to achieve with the bulky profiles of alternative materials.
Contemporary architecture is rediscovering as well the value and beauty of bronze, which was the principal performer in windows and doors of representative commercial buildings and residences of the 18th and 19th century. This noble metal emanates a warmness difficult to match with other metals.
Windows crafted from our distinctive FerroFinestra® profile ranges are ideal for historical renovation but fascinating also for new high-end residential and boutique commercial buildings. Often they become the most prominent feature in prestigious estates recalling popular architectural styles like Mediterranean, Mission Revival or Spanish Colonial. FerroFinestra® profiles are the basic components for a large variety of slender open inwards and outwards casments as well as large size sliding, by-folding and French doors.
The name “Stucco” comes from the putty or filler used to fix the single glass in this type of windows. This gave the window an arrow effect on the inside and outside.
