Arguably our most ambitious project to date. In early 2014, we were asked to visit a site in Surrey. Nothing could have prepared us for the sheer scale of the property we were about to visit. Nestled in a lovely part of Surrey just south of Guildford sits Albury Park Mansions. A 36,000 sq/ft former home due to be converted into 12 high specification luxury apartments. The perfect country retreat for the lucky few.
There was very little evidence of ongoing works as we arrived on site. However, as you enter the building, there were tradesmen everywhere working in their own areas of expertise. We were taken downstairs in the basement and shown 3 blank walls where we were asked to supply and fit full glass walls with hidden TVs and speakers. We worked alongside Digital Interiors who are also based in Surrey. Robin from Digital Interiors had the idea of using speakers attached to the back of the glass in order to project the sound as well as fitting the heated coils to enable the glass to be mist free in the spa/jacuzzi areas.
We duly put our heads together and drafted designs and ideas on how to execute this project. The glass had to perfectly match the contours of the room. The floors, walls, and the exposed brick ceiling. This was the most challenging part. However, we managed to overcome this and were able to produce the glass and fit it to the millimetre.
At PictureFrame.TV, we pride ourselves on being adaptable to every situation. On large projects like this, because we design, manufacture and install, we were able to have great control of the whole process.
The three rooms are all of different sizes, and of all the 27 panels of glass, there were no two the same. This required great planning and judgement. As you can see from the photographs, the rooms look absolutely stunning, and the feedback we’ve heard has been excellent. They definitely provide the WOW factor that client’s look for when looking at properties of this standard.
We have a number of similar projects in the pipeline for 2015/16. Should you have any questions about such installations, please feel free to contact us. We’d be happy to help at each stage of your build.
