Allgood has delivered a bespoke, bronze-finished ironmongery specification for the renovation of 103-109 Wardour Street in London’s Soho.
The renovation of the former production offices, which were once occupied by Pathé Films, was carried out by Sheppard Robson Architects LLP.
The firm was tasked with addressing an architectural imbalance; a result of a previous renovation in 1996. Although the original Edwardian facade was maintained, it covered a contemporary building of significantly lower design quality.
Consequently, Sheppard Robson aimed to rework the newer building elements in a way that would complement the original structure. To achieve this architectural vision, the firm specified a bespoke bronze finish for all ironmongery, which was supplied by Allgood.
The plan was to create 15 residential units, including two penthouses, retailing at the upper end of the market. To achieve the required luxury aesthetic, the interior designers wanted to specify a consistent ironmongery finish throughout the building.
With an eclectic mixture of textures and colours throughout the property, Allgood felt stainless steel would not be appropriate; thus, bronze-finished ironmongery was agreed upon.
The company delivered its Modric 1761 900mm pull handles and FSB 41076 lever handles, designed by Robert-Mallet Steven. Both were supplied in a bespoke bronze finish.
Allgood also provided custom signage in the same bronze shade, and bronze pocket door locking kits for all the bathrooms.
All ironmongery products used at 103-109 Wardour Street were manufactured in Allgood’s UK-based factory. The company creates its products from Grade 316 solid stainless steel, and finishes them by hand to ensure a smooth satin finish.
