Pella Windows and Doors of Wisconsin, the state’s local resource for Pella windows and doors, introduces an extensive collection of premium wood windows and patio doors, the Architect Series® Collection.
“Pella spent time researching and speaking with architects, designers, and homeowners to pinpoint their needs and desires and, from that, created the Architect Series® Reserve and the Architect Series® Contemporary products,” Len Severson, general manager of Pella Windows and Doors of Wisconsin, said. “These two lines have the same great performance and craftsmanship as the Pella Architect Series®, but are more customizable.”
Architect Series® Reserve products: Historically Authentic
Pella Architect Series® Reserve windows and patio doors intertwine historical authenticity with modern-day convenience. The line has design elements from historic homes and buildings, including:
- Putty Glaze profile grilles and sashes that are reflective of how windows used to be made
- Archival butt joinery that embodies historical window designs
- Engineered vertical through-stile construction
- Thick sash and grille profiles with authentic sightlines
- Sash lugs that turn and tilt to maintain the wash feature of windows
Available in hung, casement, and awning windows and hinged patio doors, Architect Series® Reserve products are sold exclusively through Pella Showrooms, including Pella Windows and Doors of Wisconsin.
Architect Series® Contemporary products: Smart Styling and Clean Sightlines
The Pella Architect Series® Contemporary line of wood windows and patio doors features smart styling and clean sightlines, proving less is more. Stylish hardware enhances the sleek frame to complement expansive views, all while maintaining the exceptional performance expected from Pella product lines.
Modern aesthetics that are part of the Architect Series® Contemporary line include:
- Black interior stain prefinished from the factory
- Pella’s complete exterior palette of more than 27 colors and custom colors
- Custom-designed modern hardware
- Square grille profiles to create geometric patterns and shapes
Available in casement, awning, and direct set windows and hinged patio doors, Architect Series® Contemporary products include expansive glass, sleek profiles, and complementary hardware. This new product line is available through Pella Showrooms, including Pella Windows and Doors of Wisconsin.
Improvements in Hardware
To combat the often-frustrating lack of hardware choices, Pella Corporation now has an industrial designer in-house as well as worked with Baldwin Hardware, a leading brand of the Hardware & Home Improvement (HHI) division of Spectrum Brands, Inc., to rethink the hardware for the Architect Series® Collection. Four hardware styles – Classic, Modern, Rustic and Essential – give architects a total of 28 different options.
