Originally built over 200 years ago, the revamped Spitfire Studios now combines commercial office space with eight residential apartments. Situated next to Kings Cross Station, the development is an outstanding example of how to sync modern commercial design with a rustique appearance. The building’s interior is awash with exposed brickwork archways and sanded oak floors whilst each door is fitted with access control and automatic door operators.
Due to the site’s mixed use, it was imperative that Allgood Secure provided a package that gave the building a high level of security whilst separating the residential and commercial areas.
Allgood Secure designed an advanced security and access control package including a proximity based access control system to the platform lift, external and internal doors. These were complemented by stylish audio video entry systems, comprising of grade 316 stainless steel entry panels and flush wide screen video monitors that communicated with both commercial and residential spaces.
Discreet underfloor automatic door operators were installed to control the main entrance and lobby doors, providing users with a clean aesthetic and equal access into the building. High definition CCTV cameras were strategically positioned in and around the building, allowing remote viewing of both live and recorded footage of the entire facility.
