Shoreditch Retail and Residential Refurbishment


Shoreditch, London


J Coffey

From the architectural concept of this mixed retail and residential project in Shoreditch High Street, East London, Building Steel Solutions’ technical staff developed detailed 3D drawings, generating the data necessary to source curved stainless-steel panels from a highly specialised producer in Denmark.


We sourced specially curved handrails from Angle Ring, based in the Midlands, and then used our team to adapt, assemble, and install the various elements on-site.


In the retail area, our talented team installed the steel ‘bridge’ inside the front door, manufactured and fitted the aluminium channel and steel cover plates for the glazed balustrade. 


On the roof terrace, we fabricated and installed stainless steel balustrading and other features, including special stainless-steel planters and security fencing. Even the featured stainless-steel shower head required a bespoke solution, with every fixing component specially machined to achieve a deceptively simple-looking result.  


BSS provided all of the structural steel and custom-made steelwork for this project.  


This project featured a range of skilled processes applied to different metals. It is a showpiece for steel’s excellent architectural qualities, providing strength and practicality hand in hand with elegance and style.
