G86: Art Nouveau Driveway Gates

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Cheadle, Manchester 2009

These modern Art Nouveau driveway gates illustrate how a few carefully chosen curves can bring a functional piece of wrought iron metalwork to life. The flowing curves of the design draw attention away from the straight lines making up most of the gate.

The gate is a contemporary interpretation of Art Nouveau ironwork. It was built using traditional blacksmithing techniques that contribute to the rich detailing found throughout the gate. This includes the elegant forged tapers, hot punched holes and ball nut joints. Refined detailing such as this simply isn't found in mass produced gates.
