Stagg Architects obtained planning permission to refurbish and extend the original 13,000 sq ft building by an additional 7,000 sq ft. The renovated building comprises a new roof extension, flexible spaces on the ground and lower ground floors and offices at the upper levels.
Clement Windows Group were selected to manufacture the new and replacement steel windows and doors throughout the building. Powder paint coated in RAL 9005 (Jet Black) with the accompanying hinges and handles painted to match the frames, the new fenestration perfectly complements the industrial aesthetic of the refurbished building and helps to flood each floor with light. As the building is surrounded by other properties on three sides the addition of natural light is a real bonus. The huge wall of steel windows on one side of the building includes a patterned glass which allows light to enter while also providing privacy for the neighbouring properties.
Ben Stagg, Director of Stagg Architects, commented:
“Clement Windows was selected following a lot of research, and ultimately because they were able to offer the slimmest profile metal sections. The appearance of the glazing is critical to the whole building design so we worked closely with Clement to achieve the desired appearance, with great success.”
