J42: Contemporary Wrought Iron Security Grill

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

Hampstead, London 2008

This is grill is more of a safety feature than a security grill. It covers a window at the base of the stairs and prevents accidents should anyone fall down the stairs.

The design of the grill combines a graphical quality with the flowing curves typically seen in period Art Nouveau metalwork. The joggling of the straight bars, and the weaving in and out of the flowing elements, gives the work a three dimensional quality.

The grill was commissioned at the same as the stair balustrades seen in the images and was designed to complement them.
