Originally home to Pathé films and situated in the heart of London’s famous Soho district, The Pathé Building at 109 Wardour Street is a newly refurbished development consisting of 15 apartments.
With exquisite interiors drawing on a classic British palette of textures, the apartments offer 2-3 bedrooms with communal area and kitchen. With flats retailing at the higher end of the market, it was imperative that Allgood’s specification complemented the luxury aesthetic of the apartments. Initial discussions revealed that the architect wanted to specify the same finish throughout the entire building. This presented a challenge for Allgood as there were several different types of doors and door colours: orange, white and grey. Allgood felt stainless steel, while a finish that would suit the décor, would not be appropriate for this type of residential building so a bronze finish was agreed upon.
The grey apartment front doors were supplied with bronze door closers, thumb turns, lever handles, hinges and flushbolts, whilst the bathroom doors were fitted with bronze pull handles and thumbturns. The building also required signage to direct residents and guests to various areas of the facility. However, the architect wanted to continue the bronze theme into this so Allgood manufactured bespoke individual numerals, letters and various symbols including a bicycle in a bronze finish. Like with any central London residential building, space is an extremely valuable commodity. In order to maximise space in the apartments, Allgood supplied bronze pocket door locking kits for all the bathrooms.
