Savile Row Phase 2
Savile Row Phase 2
Savile Row in Mayfair recently underwent a vast refurbishment. The 3-storey commercial building was transformed in its entirety with the use of modern architectural glazing, including a grand rooftop extension offering outstanding views across London’s landscape. Phase 1 included the installation of internal Mondrian® Glazing Systems, bespoke architectural metalwork and luxury steel room partition screens.
Now Phase 2 is complete and saw the installation of the rooftop glass box, complete with the minimal window pocket door system, structural glazing, rooflight and steel windows and doors.
Architects Piercy & Co were commisioned for this renovation and worked closely with IQ Projects for the glazing specification. Throughout both phase 1 and 2, the architectural glazing works were extremely varied and included exceptionally high specification glazing systems.
The minimal windows pocket door installed in the rooftop glass extension enhances the indoor-outdoor design of the roof box. The entire door slides away into a concealed pocket adjacent to the construction yet hidden within the structure of the building. This results in a completely open aperture with minimal visible framing. The minimal windows systems, exclusive to IQ in the UK, provides a sightline of just 21mm which is perfect for capturing the outstanding views across London.
A structural glass facade constructed from laminated solar control glass provides thermal insulation combined with a reduction in radiant heat, thus reducing the level of heat produced in the interior space. These advances in thermal technology provide high specification performance to complement impressive modern architectural glazing design. The occupants of this commercial premises on Savile Row can indulge in the luxury ethos exuded through modern London architecture and enjoy breathtaking views across London and the exclusive Mayfair district.
The architectural style has a gesture towards Savile Row’s history and heritage in bespoke design and pays homage to the geographical grandeur.
