Contemporary newbuild combines aluminium windows and ARP aluminium guttering for elegant results

ARP aluminium gutter systems were used on the Sycamore House development project to complement the contemporary design.

This stunning new build house in Cambridgeshire features ARP’s Legion Box Gutter in fashionable slate grey with matching square downpipes to complement the natural slate roof and show off the company’s capability in powder coating to match any colour required.

Designed by Gary Johns Architects and built by Ley Construction Ltd of Waterbeach, Cambridge, this was the perfect project to demonstrate how aluminium guttering and downpipes can be used in modern house design.

ARP worked with contractor Ley Construction, managing the rainwater system for the project from sampling to manufacture and supply on-site.

Additionally, ARP provided design support, conducted site visits and created technical drawings during this process. The result is a stunning rainwater solution that suits the building’s contemporary style and meets the owner’s sustainability criteria to avoid using plastic.


Aluminium guttering in an array of colours

One of the beauties of aluminium guttering is that it can be powder coated to match exactly any colour imaginable, often to match soffits, brick, windows, doors, and roofs.

On this house in Willingham, Cambridgeshire, the aluminium gutters and the square ARP Colonnade downpipes were supplied in RAL7015 slate grey to complement the slate roof and match the property’s front door.

Legion is the perfect gutter system for contemporary structures. Crafted with precision and quality, this boxy profile is manufactured at our UK plant from a high-strength aluminium sheet.

The Legion aluminium guttering system provides an impeccable look to any property that will last a lifetime!

Available in a standard joggle joint profile, ARP can make bespoke Legion profiles to suit any project.


Aluminium gutters – the sustainable choice

Aluminium gutters are perfect if you’re looking for an eco-friendly rain drainage system.

Not only do they look aesthetically pleasing, but these lightweight aluminium gutter systems are incredibly simple to install and require minimal upkeep over time – lasting up to 40 years or more!

Perfect for one-off and special projects, Legion gutters can be provided in radiused bends and with special fittings.

With its sturdy modern square profile and flush joint collars, ARP’s Colonnade downpipes are the perfect supplement to Legion Box Gutter, completing the modern, functional style perfectly.

Made from 100% recycled and recyclable, lightweight aluminium, ARP Colonnade downpipes will handle the offlow from larger roof areas.

Aluminium roofline and rainwater products were ideal for this property due to their strength, durability, and non-corrosive properties.

Additionally, aluminium can be polyester powder coated in various colours to allow the system to blend seamlessly with other building elements, ensuring an unobtrusive look when complete.

This beautiful home has been designed with a contemporary style in mind.

Thanks to ARP’s aluminium gutter and downpipe systems, the rainwater system is as stylish and sophisticated as the rest of the house – achieving a perfect balance of beauty, durability and sustainability.
