Built on the site of the former East London Bus Garage, The Forge creates 192 residential apartments clustered around communal courtyards, accessed off a new public street. Working alongside installer Ravenworth, a two-million pound systems package of 1,000 aluminium windows, 170 aluminium patio doors and 20 aluminium commercial doors were provided to this project.
The light buff buildings range from three to five storeys with a contrasting white brick 14-storey focal building. This forms the gateway to the development together with a row of interestingly designed townhouses. Each block's facade displays frequent openings with contrasting areas of glazing and cladding, softened with balconies.
TECHNAL Dualframe 75Si windows, Dualframe 75HP, Confort 160S Life & Slide Patio Doors, Stormframe STII Doors and Elegance 52 Curtain Walling helped to bring the concept to life giving a constant look across the development. All systems have been manufactured in a durable olive grey powder coat finish, internally and externally, to complement the brick selectiion and the development's contemporary architectural style.
