Gates - West End Quay, Paddington, London, W2

A large new development located on Praed Street, London required after hours security gates between the three residential apartment blocks. 

Several schemes had been rejected by Westminster Council or the Residents Association. The Council required something self-effacing while residents required something contemporary and secure. 

The result was a 'family' of gates constructed using mainly flat section steels. The sections became less dense on the upper part of the design allowing the public to see through the gates to the canal. The changing perspective of the flat sections added a sense of movement to the design. i-Beams were used for posts and included the access control system for each apartment block.
