Prestigious shading with a smart, consistent exterior
Cloudesley Street is an inspired architect-led development of a period structure in North London’s metropolitan Islington area. In order to create a unified exterior look, Stansons were asked for a consistent, intelligent shading solution to accommodate a variety of residential window areas that would still allow colour variations to the interior.
Modern interior with a sympathetic outlook
This imposing red brick mansion block sits at the southern end of Cloudesley Street. When the redevelopment into prestige flats was considered, local planning laws and the architect’s vision dictated that all the exterior views of the windows should have a consistent look, whilst still allowing for varying colour schemes in the interiors. The period nature of the property meant that installing modern shading would not be without challenge.
The Stansons Solution
Stansons met the challenge with a simple yet stylish solution: Armour Metallic Back would give a consistent sliver grey colour to the exterior, whilst allowing almost any colour choice for the interior. Not only were the blinds fire resistant to BS5877, they also offered strong solar reflection. Each blind was installed on the Armour BackBar fixing profile that reduces point loadings at each fixing and guarantees a safe and long-lasting installation.
Consistent without - colourful within
Working with both the architect and the developer, Stansons delivered the blinds on time and each blind was right first time. Proud homeowners now enjoy colourful interiors and modern shading. Proof that beauty is in the detail.
