Designed by Amanda Levete Architects (AL_A), the Exhibition Road Quarter redevelopment at the V&A Museum provides a range of new public spaces inside and outside, whilst creating a new relationship between the heart of the Museum and Exhibition Road.
The project has created a new courtyard, entrance and glazed cafe on Exhibition Road, welcoming visitors into the space and allowing the previously hidden facades of Aston Webb’s original buildings to be seen. Internally, a new 1,100 square metre column-free space has been created allowing the V&A to significantly improve the way it designs and presents its world class exhibition programme.
Irontree was asked to assist with the redevelopment by sub-contractor Vogue Development. Ironmongery hardware and furniture was required for the glazed cafe on the courtyard whilst a range of sliding door hardware and ironmongery was needed inside the museum’s new exhibition spaces. From start to finish, Irontree managed the detailed scheduling of all items required whilst delivering to the tight deadlines on the project.
Farnham Mill is a new 60 bed care home specialising in elderly and nursing care, along with 16 shared equity homes on a former mill pond site in Farnham.
Designed by Re-Format, the 3,400 square metre care home and the neighbouring housing are designed as a set of 2 and 3 storey buildings that match in terms of external form and materials.
Working with the client and contractor MCS, Irontree was asked to schedule and supply a full architectural ironmongery hardware package. Ensuring that the ironmongery on the project added real value, Irontree specified swing free door closers to allow the fire doors to be used easily, whilst ensuring the doors close in the event of a fire. Clear protection plates were also supplied to ensure doors are not damaged by wheel chairs or heavy equipment, whilst having minimal impact to the overall aesthetic of the interior. Finally, a full master keyed system was supplied along with the rest of the co-ordinated ironmongery package.
Stunningly-located overlooking Harve des Fontaines Bay in Jersey, Roque Bay is a new development of 13 apartments and 3 town houses on the former site of The Shakespeare Hotel.
Designed by Castletree Homes, the range of one to two bedroom apartments and two to three bedroom houses benefit from outstanding sea views and private access to the beach. In addition, all of the properties receive a concierge service and private parking.
The quality of the build on the project was of utmost importance and this extended to the door and ironmongery package. Irontree were privileged to be selected to supply the complete doorset solution, managing the specification of all doors and hardware across the development. Satin white panelled doors in a range of glazed and fire rated designs were manufactured to project bespoke sizes. In addition, Art Deco door furniture in polished chrome finish was chosen to provide a high end aesthetic to compliment the design of the building. Finally, all doors were factory morticed for the ironmongery and fully paint finished ready for installation on site.
