Hackney Church Brew Co has been given the steel star treatment by Steel Window Services & Supplies, a member of the Steel Window Association.
The premises, which house the brewery, shop and bar formerly housed garages within the Victorian railway arches. Nowadays, locals and tourists alike can enjoy the ambience and experience of a truly authentic brewery.
Steel Window Service & Supplies’ project entailed providing W20 arched, headed external screens, along with interior doors and screens. 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 a stunning urban aesthetic echoing the building’s heritage whilst also reflecting the nature of this vibrant , fashionable district of London.
Another innovative touch was the silicone fronted glazing which replicates perfectly the authentic look and feel of traditional steel windows. Lucas Che Tizard, Red Deer Architects, said “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.”
