The glass shop fronts (384sqm) and 78 doors (659sqm) represented a particular challenge in terms of the heritage conservation requirements. The folding doors have steel frames and sheet metal parts and are distinctive because of their laser-cut details. A feature of the doors is the handmade blown glasses, produced in a wide variety of colours by a pontifical stained glass studio, which were glued to the insulating glass panes.
The entire external appearance of the “heritage windows” in combination with the brickwork creates a new London landmark.
