Abode has revealed that its Pronteau steaming hot water taps have been used in a unique 160sq m water tower restoration project in Castle Acre, Norfolk. Following the addition of a new CLT timber tower and careful infilling, the original water tank is now an open-plan kitchen living space complete with Pronteau Propure 4 IN 1 steaming hot water tap in an Urban Copper finish. Offering domestic cold, hot, filtered cold and up to 98° steaming hot water, the Propure hot water tap removes the need for a kettle and water-filter jugs, which take up space. As the property needs to cater to a family of four, the additional breakfast room on the second floor, is also designed with a Pronteau Propure 4 IN 1, to ensure the height of convenience, design continuity and eco luxury in the modern home and living space.
Paul Illingworth, design manager at Abode said: “We were delighted to be a part of this project alongside property owner Dennis Pedersen and Tonkin Liu Architects, as they meticulously came together to reimagine a derelict industrial water tank into a contemporary, family home. Dennis purchased the water tower at auction for £20,000 in 2015, and then project-managed all the building work himself to save money and realise Tonkin Liu’s architectural vision with the help of a local builder."
Available in nine different designs, Pronteau by Abode offers a range of WRAS approved steaming hot water taps, all regulated and approved under the Water Regulatory Advisory Scheme having undergone extensive testing to ensure these taps do not cause waste or undue consumption. All components within the Pronteau hot water tap system are also WRAS approved, and to ensure extra peace of mind in a busy household, all Pronteau hot taps are insulated which means the water is hotter at the end of the spout but the outside surface remains cool to touch.
Leanne Adamson, marketing manager at Abode said: “We believe that safety and sustainability go hand in hand in interior design and construction, which is why we continually invest in new product development to ensure our designs are fit for purpose. As a practical example, our exclusive Filter Recycle Scheme enables end users to return redundant filters directly to us for recycling. In fact, a filter tap not only makes it easier to drink better tasting water, they are also great in hard water areas, like the South and East of England. Delivering an endless supply of fresh filtered water on tap, this type of kitchen solution will assist around 60% of the UK, who are already classified as having hard or very hard water! Plus, as drinking more water continues to be strongly encouraged by health professionals, a filter water tap is investing in both your home and personal health.”
