338 Euston Road

338 Euston Road showcases StoVentec Glass in stunning fashion as the UK's first interior project to reflect on the benefits of the glass panel system.

The dramatic office refurbishment required a reception lobby that created a stunning visual impact, reflecting the quality of the businesses within.

Daniel Cruddace, Associate Architect at Sheppard Robson, said: "The existing building was initially re-clad in the early 1990's by Sheppard Robson. Client British Land then appointed SR to review options to update the building's office lobby and communal areas with a coherent and striking design that reflected their wider estates development."

"As architects, we constantly research industry developments. We have an award-winning interior design team (ID:SR) who keep up to speed on quality interior products and advise throughout the design process. We looked at a range of materials of various qualities, light, colouration and several glass products. In this instance, StoVentec Glass matched our requirement. It provided the necessary high visual impact at the building entrance, giving the space the presence required on Euston Road."

Applicator, Adrian Buckmaster of Aztec Solutions, comments: "This installation marked the first time StoVentec Glass had been used in the UK, a first for Aztec and a first for Sto.

"The StoVentec application employed a highly flexible support system that held the glass panels to the wall and allowed for flexibility in fixing the system to the existing structure. All brackets and support rails were pre-fixed to the glass panels so site installation was extremely fast.

"The individual glass panels had the ability to incorporate pre-designed screen printing with numbers indicating floor levels and cut outs for services e.g. lifts and switches. The system produces a fantastic effect and has a highly serviceable glass finish that is easy to install and maintain. We would definitely use the system again."

StoVentec Glass can be used as an external rainscreen cladding system, or as an interior decorative option. The StoVentec Glass Panel is manufactured to meet bespoke colour and size requirements, with RAL colour and screen-printing options available.
