This Grade 2 listed building on Wardour Street in Soho was originally a warehouse for the printing and bookbinding department of Novello Music Publishers. Whilst creating office space more suitable for the media tenants in the heart of Soho the architects needed to respect the building’s history. The office floors were taken back to their warehouse feel by exposing the structure and sandblasting all the paintwork off the brickwork. Our challenge was to offer a fire door solution that matched the Crittall windows in this listed building.

Not only did we successfully replicate the look of the windows, the result is a new Pyrostyle Fire Rated product – The Heritage Range, which is already being offered on similar projects. Medius House exemplifies Stewart Fraser’s consultative approach and dedication to continually developing and improving its products.
