Sir John Soane Inspired Balustrade

Sir John Soame inspired balustrade 2016

We made this balustrade for a private home near Henley in 2016. We have recently received the final images of it in situ. The balustrade was designed in collaboration with the project architect and was inspired by Sir John Soane’s Moggerhanger House.  Whilst it looks beautifully simple it was a deceptively difficult job with fiddly and precise ironwork. It’s great to see it in its completed setting.

In the workshop today…18th July

Just a few snaps of the team hard at work in the intense heat we’ve been experiencing. Martin and Paul are pictured putting the finishing touches to the renewed leadwork detail on a pair of beautiful balconettes which we have been commissioned to restore for a listed property in Bath. Interestingly although they look very similar the two balconnettes are not identical – and one is older than the other.

Dom looking delighted to be doing his ‘maths homework’ on the handrail of a lovely decorative balustrade for a period property on the fringes of Bath.  James and Jason finishing off some simple panel railings while Jim is working on some hot forged scrolls for the same balustrade.

 

The Oak Leaf balustrade

We were recently commissioned to make up a sample panel for a bespoke balustrade. The design is based on hand forged oak leaves. We have yet to make the balustrade, but thought it would be fun to show you what the guys came up with.
