BC NOHO’s stunning curved atrium glazing 

The London offices of BC Noho were recently installed to the highest standard with an impressive mixture of bespoke partitioning.

The offices are near such London hotspots as the iconic BT Tower, Facebook’s London headquarters and The Royal Institute of British Architects. On this project, we worked with main contractors Interserve and architects, Barr Gazetas across two levels.

Partitions

Our design team worked to a demanding specification, designing a beautifully curved partition to serve as BC Noho’s central atrium glazing. This partition uses high-performing 17.5mm partition glass. 

Similarly, one of the main features specified by architects Barr Gazetas was a partition which suited the shape of the room. This presents challenges in the design process. Our designer, Anuska Appleyard used her creative skills to present this bespoke system. Accordingly, the atrium glazing fulfilled a variety of functions, including protection against a single storey void. This is due to the curved system sitting on the first floor of the building. 

As a result, the grand aesthetic of this partition is apparent on entering the chic space. The curve envelopes the reception at a height, creating the illusion of a bigger space. In addition to giving the space depth, this clever design works in cohesion with the décor, matching the colour of the structural steel beams scattered around the space. 

Furthermore, we installed the Revolution 54 stretching downwards from the atrium glazing to the ground floor, partitioning off the reception area from a separate open-plan space. This is an ingenious piece of design. Anuska designed the curved glazing and the ground floor partition separately. Then with precise measurements in AutoCAD she ensured the two partitions fit together perfectly. This design boasts bespoke quality with imagination, creating a seamless transition between ground floor and first floor systems. 

Doors and screens

Equally importantly, we installed a number of dynamic doors and screens into this ambitious fit-out. Our fire rated Technishield 65 EI30 screen was installed as well as a stylish double glazed Edge Affinity half door set. The half door was installed to suit the needs and space restrictions specified. In addition, we also added cranked pull handles to give another element of quality in design. Barr Gazetas specified these bronze door handles in order to boldly contrast to the black frames of the doors, infusing another element of modern design.

Likewise, you can also find the Edge Affinity Shoreditch Edition rebated double door set within the space. In addition, we robustly test the Edge Affinity doors in accredited acoustic labs. As a result,  we have found that the door provides a great acoustic value of Rw39dB.
