It's a gate Jim but not as we know it

"... Verdigris; where engineering becomes art ..."

<< Blog; 18th April 2015 >>

I talked about frameless gates in my last post and here is another. I'm always attracted to uncoventional gate designs, especially ones with no frame such as this gate. Its cantilevered central band provides its strength and structure; the rest of the gate is decorative!

This gate was previously commmissioned and installed in St Mawes Cornwall. However, I thought I'd post these pictures to show the internal structure hidden in the cantilever. The design of the gate is a development of another previous commission and is a nice example of engineering becoming art!
