Tottenham Court Road
Aluminium Curtain Wall, Windows & Shop Fronts
Project: Tottenham Court Road
Owner: London & Regional Properties Ltd Contractor: Keir London
Architect: Quinlan & Francis Terry
Date of completion: 2012
This imposing building is adjacent to the famous Dominion Theatre in London’s West End. The original design concept included bronze windows and curtain wall to enhance the building’s commanding position. However, budget restraints forced the contractor, owner and architects to seek alternatives to achieve the same theatrical grandness without the costs of solid bronze.
Stewart Fraser offered the perfect solution by developing a bespoke design that emulated the architect’s detailed vision yet allowed substantial savings to the original scheme. Having manufactured new dies, the aluminium sections were powder coated bronze. The result of our innovative approach is a stunning façade of stone columns, windows and curtain wall that announces the building’s presence in its prestigious location.
