Before & After

The use of bespoke glass to improve functionality

Sometimes it can be difficult to visual just how much difference structural glass will actually make to a project. These ‘before and after’ images of recent projects in bespoke structural glass might inspire your designs.

Bespoke glass doors at St Dionis

Glass doors are visually welcoming, encouraging visitors to see inside as well as improving the flow of natural light into the building.  Our frameless glass doors meet every need, including full security, the option to fit fully automatic doors and bespoke glass doors to fit arches, difficult or unusual shapes and sizes.

The front entrance of the church of St Dionis is in the heart of Parsons Green, close to shops and overlooking the green itself.  But the original wooden front door looked dark and uninviting, off putting for visitors and gloomy inside.

Replacing the wooden door with glass and opening up the bricks on either side to include two full height side windows has transformed the entrance, which now welcomes the local community to a packed itinerary of events.

Bespoke Glass Screens at St Dionis

Bespoke Glass Screens at St Dionis

Bespoke structural glass screens can be used to create meeting rooms, conserve heat and improve light flow with minimal impact on the original structure of the building.  With or without doors, glass screens can be designed in clear, opaque or switchable glass, manufactured in single or multiple panels to fit large or small spaces.

Inside St Dionis a solid brick arch between the entrance and the nave was completely removed to be replaced with a full height glass screen in switchable glass.  Offering a clear view of the interior of the church in normal use the glass can become fully opaque for privacy when required.

Bespoke Glass Panels at Kings College

Frameless glass panels are the optimum choice for improving the functionality of ‘indoor/outdoor’ spaces that would otherwise be exposed to the weather.

The Henriette Raphael Turret at Kings College London had a series of open walkways on each floor that were not only unpleasant in use but were damaging the structure of the building as a result of continual water ingress.

Enclosing the arches with bespoke glass screens and panels has modernised the look and functionality of the building and avoided further structural damage.  The use of minimal fixtures creates a stylish result in keeping with original architecture.
