Docklands in the frame thanks to Crittall

Crittall windows have been used to frame a spectacular London docklands view promoting a prestigious new residential and leisure development for the capital.

When Ballymore Property Group needed state-of-the-art glazing for the marketing suite promoting their London City Island development they turned to D&R Design who provided the perfect solution using large Crittall W20 steel doors and screens.

Four large double-glazed screens incorporating double doors were installed in the converted dockside warehouse with an uninterrupted view across the Thames to the O2 arena and Canary Wharf.

“The sleek lines of Crittall’s narrow W20 profiles provide the perfect view whilst protecting the suite from the River Thames elements,” says D&R Design managing director David Phillips.

The London City Island scheme is located on a peninsular of land where the River Lea meets the Thames. The site, of just under five hectares, combines high-end apartments, a network of walkways, open spaces and residents’ clubhouse, spa and pools./

The residential project has won both the 2017 Mayor of London Planning Awards Best New Place to Live category and the RESI residential property Award 2017 for Development of the Year.
