The Corniche is one of a trio of new developments to be delivered by St James situated on the south side of the River Thames. Designed by Foster + Partners, the brief was very simple, to deliver a building that is “perfectly designed exceptional luxury” where interior design flows seamlessly and texture, grandeur and space define the interior. The iconic design called for ‘high end’ interior finishes matched to distinctly modern sensibility whilst maintaining stringent compliance with all necessary fire, acoustic and security standards.
Integrated Doorsets worked collaboratively with St James to develop a collection of timber veneered doors, frames and intricate wall panelling specifying natural dyed veneers which were not only grain filled to create an ultra-smooth appearance but also hand lacquered to provide a 40% sheen. The ironmongery was described to include bespoke leather finish door handles which were specifically manufactured for the project.
Front entrance doorsets were specified to include our high performance Enduracor® door construction, with 54mm thick door leaves to provide PAS 24 compliance in addition to an acoustic rating of 32RwdB and FD30/FD60 fire performance. Communal doors were manufactured using the Ovi high performance door core in both single and double leaf configurations certified to achieve FD30 or FD60 fire performance.
Integrated Doorsets manufactured 1,847 apartment doorsets and 370 communal sets to the project with installation carried out by premium fit out specialists, Avis Contracts. 800 wardrobe doors were also supplied to Sunbeam Joinery for installation into their supply of fitted wardrobes. The project was delivered on time and on budget and we are proud to have played such a key part helping create such an exemplary landmark building in such a prestigious location.
The plan required an exceptionally high quality of finishes to the doors, frames and wall panelling with wall panels mitred into the frame extension linings.
