W20 Arched, headed external screens, along with interior doors and screens from Steel Window Service & Supplies have helped to transform the site of former garages in two Victorian railway arches in London into a brewery, shop and bar.

The project, for the Hackney Church Brew Co, took over 80 man days. The company supplied and fitted the large entrance screens, two large external screens at the rear of the building, four internal WC doors and one internal double door set.

The W20 suite features an industrial patina finish which offers an ‘urban aesthetic’ echoing the building’s heritage while also reflecting the nature of this fashionable district of London.  Another innovative touch was the silicone fronted glazing which replicates the authentic look and feel of traditional steel windows.

Lucas Che Tizard at Red Deer Architects added: “Set within two large Victorian brick arches near Hackney Central, this project involved the installation of a large brewery in one arch and a dispense bar and kitchen in the other. Set up in affiliation with St John at Hackney Church the design took stimulus from the industrial process of brewing and the physical aspects of the church.

“Large double height metal framed glazing was thus installed to create an etherial yet industrial aesthetic for the façade. Sizable solid timber trusses were then installed to mimic traditional church construction techniques.”
