Architect: St Vincent De Paul
Client: Jackson Teece
Work completed by Active Metal:
Stainless steel flat bar posts, frameless glazed balustrades, custom designed handrail brackets, stainless steel handrails.
Responding to and complementing the hospital’s heritage setting, the recently built St Vincent De Paul Headquarters in Lewisham provides clear and flexible work spaces to encourage collaboration and conversation between staff members. Situated in the centre of the building, the steel staircase connects employees with their peers, facilitating easy movement between floors.
Frameless glass panels and half-height stainless steel flat bar posts were combined to give a sleek and modern look to the new workspace. Continuously following the steel stair flights and voids, this detail was continued onto the outdoor terrace areas. Active Metal’s thorough and accurate design work was evidenced in the perfect first-go installation of over 80 profiled glass panels with no remakes.
