To design, make, and install several architectural glass features for this luxury private residence. Items commissioned included table tops, balustrading, frameless WC and shower cubicles, cabinets and wall panelling.
After client consultation at Daedalian’s studios, an etched design was selected (original artwork by Sue Hope) for the main feature staircase. Laminated fabric was selected for the master en-suite and the design of the office table top was commissioned from Daedalian. A coloured cracked ice design was used for the breakfast bar.
The balustrade was etched with a silver birch pattern and LED`s were integrated underneath the wooden capping of the handrails. This edge lighting technique passes light through the panel, highlighting the deep etching of the design. The silver-birch design was also used on the cabinet and bedroom doors (8mm low-iron glass) utilising a multi-depth and multi-sided etching technique to create a textured 3D design.
For the laminated partition screen and doors in the master en-suite, a translucent white chiffon fabric was selected to create a glowing effect. The adhesive interlayer used is completely waterproof and a surface coating was added to the inside of the shower to aid maintenance and cleaning.
The circular breakfast bar featured a cracked ice glass design laminated with a coloured interlayer and back painted while the worktop of the office desk used a technique called verre eglomise - painting and etching in gold, white, and silver.
All the door furniture and substrate preparation was delivered and installed by Daedalian Glass Studios.
