Intelligent shading solutions for an exclusive London residential development
Xchange Point in the Market Road area in Islington, London N7, comprises four residential blocks of striking architectural impact. These new build, high specification residential apartments and penthouses incorporate intelligent shading solutions by Stansons that are tailored to each living space and meet the developer’s demanding specifications and budget.
Competitive pricing for a premium development
Specialist property developers Span Group are leaders in the design of innovative, high specification residential and commercial properties.
The group’s new Market Road development required tailored shading solutions for living and sleeping areas in their proposed two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses.
Installation of window treatments at the end of the project meant budgets would be tight, but this could not be allowed to compromise the quality of the selected window solutions.
The Stansons solution
Stanson’s approach delivered solutions that met Span Group’s high specifications and tight budgets, while meeting residents’ requirements across different areas of the development. Collaboration with the project consultant enabled the Stansons design team to create strategic designs for the residential areas, using the Armour range of manual chain operated roller blinds: Privacy in the sleep and rest areas would be maintained with a blackout fabric, while the concealed bracket and barrel construction at the top of the blind would enhance the clean profile around the elevation.
Voile was used in the commercial sectors of the development, where control of solar gain would be required for south facing offices during the daytime, allowing occupants to maintain high levels of productivity in a cool environment.
The main living areas of the penthouses, which demanded a spacious and light feel, were fitted with a voile textile window solution incorporating woven fabric that combines through-light penetration and privacy. The feel of luxury was further enhanced by hand-built timber Venetian blinds with optional ladder tapes to provide a dramatic feature.
The contemporary feel and luxury specification of the Market Road development has been met with uninterrupted clean lines throughout. Stansons’ low maintenance, functional yet stylish solutions allow residents effortless control of light, solar glare, and privacy, dependant on their mood and time of day, while never compromising on fabric quality.
Environmental control and hence comfort has been enhanced, while an elegant appearance has been ensured.
