Architect: Hugh Broughton Architects
Contractor: Contrakt Ltd
Developer: Derwent London
Type of works: manufacture and installation of 214 manual and 21 motorised 50mm Midimatic venetian blinds.
Over a short period of four weeks, Faber Blinds measured, manufactured and installed blinds according to the architects specification. The power supplies and components had to be in place prior to the finishing stage of the building. All manually operated blinds have open and close functions for all users, where raising and lowering of the blinds is operated by the maintenance staff, with a newly incorporated ring-pull headrail. All 21 motorised venetian blinds on the top floor office are opened and closed together at the press of a single switch. Side guide wires were provided to ensure that blinds in the top floors mezzanine area, with 13 degrees sloped windows, would operate smoothly.
Originally designed by award-winning architects Troughton McAslan, 151 Rosebery Avenue office building is now fully refurbished and extended by Hugh Broughton Architects. 20,000 sq ft is now pre-let to Momentum.
