hese high-end apartments next to Leicester Square Station have been renovated with the addition of glass sliding doors and glass balustrades from IQ Projects. The glass sliding doors have been used in all of the apartments in this luxury residential building with wider glass sliding doors being used in the communal areas.

Large glass sliding doors maximise the natural light intake into the bedrooms and communal areas of the luxury apartments. The wider glass doors create an indoor-outdoor living space as they merge the communal kitchen with the large patio, providing added space.

IQ Projects have created various minimal Juliette Balcony designs by integrating glass balustrades onto the inside of the glass sliding doors in each apartment. These glass balustrades create a Juliet balcony, allowing the homeowners to appreciate the views of London without any junctions or framing obstructing the views. Whether the sliding glass doors are open or closed the balustrades are almost invisible but when the doors are opened, they act as an effective and durable safety barrier.

This building is surrounded by other overlooking buildings so privacy and natural light was an issue that needed to be addressed. Privacy screens in the courtyard and large slim framed sliding glass doors achieved the privacy needed.

Vitra Pivot windows have been installed onto the front elevations of the apartments to allow access to the small balcony areas. All frames have been powder coated a bronze colour for a cohesive design with the metal railings as well as a luxury design finish.
