Westminster Fire Station: Window Screen - OPENSTUDIO
Westminster Fire Station: Window Screen

The rear of the existing Grade ll listed Fire Station has a series of forged iron railings.

We proposed a series of solid brass screens, which can allow light to penetrate while maintaining privacy into the apartments, and acting as protection to the full height sliding doors.

These refer to the vertical forged railings of the historic building fabric, while enabling detail and depth to be added to the new building.  As they have triple layers the patterning of the screens alters with movement around the building.
