Home House Private Members Club, London
Following the acquisition of 21 Portman Square to be incorporated in the Home House Club, MBL was engaged to survey, schedule and supply the locks and architectural ironmongery.
Special emphasis was made to continue the theme of the existing club premises and retain the integrity of the original building.
Further to this general brief MBL was required to integrate modern access control and security master systems with reproduction period door furniture.
MBL scheduled and supplied the complete architectural ironmongery package including utilitarian stainless steel and brass architectural ironmongery for service areas, British Standard and European Union certificated items for specified areas and purpose made reproduction furniture for the principal rooms.
MBL reproduced copies of the 18th century mortice knob sets used by the club and these are perhaps the most visually impressive items.
Although from a more sedate period in history, the modern reproductions were manufactured to withstand the rigours of a modern existence without compromise to their aesthetic beauty.
With the integration of past elegance and modern technology we were able to achieve the desired style for the property with the up to date technological requirements of high usage and security.
