Bespoke glass entrance lobby for The Gun Room

Bespoke glass entrance lobby for The Gun Room

The Gun Room dates back to the Napoleonic wars in later years the building became a tannery and was subsequently used as a village hall and community centre. It was fully restored by the Rathfinny Wine Estate and re-opened as a retail centre specialising in locally sourced products. Restoring the building involved a new roof, new walls, floor and exterior cladding. The interior was redesigned with open retail space and stairs leading to a mezzanine floor area.

Frameless glass balustrading was installed by Ion Glass to the stairs and mezzanine floor to give the interior a light, airy and contemporary feel. Ion designed and commissioned bespoke bracketry to fix a timber shelf to the glass balustrade at an appropriate height for visitors to use as a convenient place to rest their wine glasses during tasting sessions.

The frameless glass balustrade achieves a minimal result that creates a light and airy feel to the interior, whilst the combination of glass with the oak treads and handrails is very much in keeping with the heritage of the building. Installing a glass lobby area allows maximum light into the building whilst creating an entrance that is visually welcoming for visitors, allowing them to see the interior from outside the building.
