Lygon Place is set back from Ebury Street, Belgravia behind a private cobbled carriage driveway with a gated entrance.
This Grade II listed terrace, with an Arts and Crafts-influenced design by Eustace Balfour and Hugh Thackeray Turner, counts Freeman Thomas, 1st Marquess of Willingdon (Viceroy of India and Governor General of Canada) as well as the Air Attaché of Italy among its former residents.
Daedalian Glass Studios were commissioned to create vibrant and warm wet room doors and side panels for both the shower and steam room areas of this luxury private residence.
The brief was to use utilise a glass design possessing opaque qualities - providing privacy - whilst also holding translucent qualities - to maximise the light flow within these areas lacking in a natural light source.
After client consultations, Daedalian Glass Studios provided a sample of laminated low-iron glass, with a Toucan Orange interlayer and frosted front and rear faces. Daedalian Glass Studios can customise this glass design to any colour code specified by clients. After discussion a second round of samples was provided with a slightly more 'rose' colour.
After client approval was confirmed, these shower and steam room panels were manufactured from 6mm toughened, low-iron glass. Once the the frosted effect was achieved on the outer faces by sandblasting, Clearshield was applied to the glass to create non-stick, hygienic, and easy-to-clean surface finishes.
