This project in Holland Park was one of the most ambitious we’ve ever carried out. Ask us to design a Mirror TV or an Art TV, and we could almost do it with our eyes closed. But with this one, our eyes remained firmly open. We first visited the site back in November 2015. The house looked like a huge commercial building inside. It was far off from being ready for any kind of a Mirror TV. Below you’ll see photos from the start to the finish.
The client had an idea to clad the entire lift shaft in black glass with a 65″ TV facing the kitchen/dining area. Our philosophy when faced with these kinds of projects are to always say yes. This is how we as a company grow our portfolio, but also our ability to create some very unique and bespoke Mirror TV products.
The idea was to have almost 50 separate pieces of glass surrounding the lift shaft. The entire space had to be templated for 50 pieces of custom cut glass. The glass finish was not our usual Mirror TV glass. The client was very specific about wanting to use black glass. Another great detail on this project was using mitred edges on all the corners. This made for great aesthetics and finishing.
The lift shaft with the TV switched off, enabled the TV to be completely hidden away and out of sight. You can get a small idea of the level of attention to detail in this property. A modern looking large screen TV would have just looked out of place in such an interior designed environment.
It wasn’t until the summer of 2016 that the process of fitting the glass came around. The client’s existing home was a 5,000 square foot home that they extended to 10,000 square feed by way of a basement extension. In the basement, we finished an entire wall in mirror glass, and three large Mirror TV panels above the ballerina bar.
We were also asked to finish off various door frames in glass, and come up with an idea to create a mirror that had a 150mm bevel. Something that no glass processor was able to do. We used some clever trickery to achieve this, and as you can see in the pictures below, it looked amazing in the black marble surround.
We hope after reading this, you can trust us with either yours or your client’s home.
