A residential and mixed use regeneration scheme comprising a 100-room hotel, three retail units and a gym for the students of King’s College London. In a prominent location in the developing London Bridge Quarter, the scheme provides a vibrant public space within the shadows of Southwark Cathedral. Working closely with Gilbert Ash and LTS Architects we designed and installed the structural glazing and windows.

The project was a winner of New London Architecture Awards 2017.

A renovation and rooftop extension to an old warehouse soon to become office space, the building offers a modern industrial feel interior with stunning views of the London skyline. The project was challenging to design and install due to the barrel vault roof design, large heavy glass and closed in scaffold above offering very limited space to manoeuvre. The system incorporated was the Schuco FWS50 curtain wall with inserted ASS50 sliding doors, complete with very large HP Neutral IG units and Zinc tiled insulated panels. Completed successfully within the £900,000 budget and on time.

Theis and Khan developed their own offices in Shoreditch, creating a mixed-use building comprising of 3 floors of commercial space with a residential unit above. Ridlands were appointed by Theis and Khan to achieve the exacting details that they required for the project knowing that we could achieve and work to their meticulous standards.

Throughout the building we designed and installed aluminium casement doors with windows fabricated from Schuco AWS/ADS65 range of profiles. The residential unit has large sliding doors which feature on two levels with structural glazed solar control IG units on the Batemans Row elevation, the windows are detailed with glass to glass joints. Roof lights are glazed and open.

The building has been awarded an RIBA London Award 2010, RIBA London Building of the Year Award 2010, shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2010.

A luxury property development in the heart of Notting Hill, the site has been developed specifically for the high end market. A former post office comprising of 4 floors including a basement, we worked with the architects from concept through to completion over a period of 2 years to design and install of the structural glass, external metalwork, windows, balustrades and doors.

The property is designed with a central courtyard which forms the heart of the space, electronically operated sliding glass doors open fully to create a free flowing space from inside to out. A living green wall punctuates vertically through the property, starting at the basement which also houses a swimming pool which structural glass sides. The property is estimated to sell for approximately £40 million.

House refurbishment with a rear extension, completed in 2011.

A high end project with LBMV Architects, we developed detailed designs for bespoke aluminium sliding doors that operate automatically with a mechanical opening, structural glazing and exterior cladding with details of seamless material overlaps and managed on- site the installation to the rear extension to the house.

A high end residential refurbishment and extension in partnership with LBMV Architects. We worked closely with the architects to develop detailed designs for bespoke aluminium sliding doors that operate automatically with a mechanical opening, structural glazing and exterior cladding with details of seamless material overlaps.

A Victorian house refurbishment with a loft conversion and side extension, completed in 2013.

A high end project with an exacting architect and client, Ridlands worked in partnership with LBMV Architects to develop detailed designs and manage on site the installation of bespoke aluminium sliding doors, structural glazing and cladding for the new extension and loft conversion areas of the house.

A very high end private residence in Hampstead Garden Suburb, a conservation area.

Ridlands were appointed by FB Ellmer Construction working with KSR Architects to develop with them bespoke internal wall cladding, utilising handmade textured cast tempered and enamelled glass, bespoke structurally glazed walk on floor glass, structurally glazed balustrading and armourplate door sets.

Located in the sensitive context of The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Thomas’s is a private school set in a Grade 2 Listed Building. The project was to develop the existing facilities and add extensions for the Music and Art Rooms. Studio Webb invited us to work with them to detail the design of the curtain walling, structural glazing and bonded glass doors and windows throughout.

A new extension to an existing sports department within Alfriston School, a special needs girls school in Buckinghamshire. Feltham Construction working with Duggan Morris Architects, appointed Ridlands to work in partnership with them to design and install the structural glazing and presswork elements to the project. The roof scheme is designed as a floating hat, articulated by three inverting pitched segments, evocative of ripples within the pool. The sculptural form also serves as an acoustic baffle, a crucial aspect to the brief for the needs of the end users.

Our challenge was to detail the bespoke structural glazing to seamlessly align into the roof structure to make it appear floating, whilst aligning precisely with the structural components.
