Ion Double Glass Doors for Holy Trinity Church

Ion Double Glass Doors for Holy Trinity Church

Ion glass were chosen to provide their internal glass doors; external glass doors and glass screens to create two structural glass meeting rooms at the Holy Trinity Church in Chelsea. The church commissioned sound-proofed rooms to enable private meetings and to provide space for children during the Sunday service combined with new entrance doors to retain heat, exclude draughts and to provide an acoustic barrier against external traffic noise.

The new double glass doors are hinged from fixed side panels with a single glass transom panel above, stabilised internally with minimal glass fins. Each set of glass doors is designed to work in sync with each other to ensure that one set is closed before the other set opens and that left and right doors close together.

Two meeting rooms are entirely constructed from structural glass, allowing an unhindered view of the nave. The glass screens are set into the original stonework with lateral bracing provided by partial glass fins. Frameless glass pivot doors provide access to each meeting room. The space was created from 12mm acoustic glass to provide a wholly quiet and private environment.

The finished result meets all the requirements: it makes excellent use of a previously under-utilised area of the church to provide sound-proofed, multi-functional glass meeting rooms retaining the Arts & Crafts ethos of the building without impact to the view of the nave.
