Carter Lane Balconies

Carter Lane Balconies

The design is based around cranes, the type that would often be seen mounted high on the front of old commercial warehouses, one on each side of each balcony that form a framework and structure to carry the centre decorative oak tree. In the bottom corners of each balcony you will see a Tudor rose and a kiwi these represent the nationality of the clients. I chose to use all traditional construction with most stock forged to size as I felt this would help achieve right aesthetic for the work in its surroundings.

Finishing consisted of blast cleaning, then galvanising with a final 4 coat paint finish of Farrow and Ball card room green. 16mm stainless steel pins were resin fixed in to the stone sills to retain the balconies at the top, the bottom fixing feet pivot on ½ inch brass pins fitted after galvanising to accommodate the slope of the timber sills, fixed with stainless steel screws.
