SIMONSWERK UK’s concealed TECTUS hinges have been fitted throughout the remarkable refurbishment of Regent’s Crescent, the UK’s only Grade 1 Listed New Build.
Designed in 1820 by John Nash who is remembered for his work on Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch and Regent Street in London. John Nash is one of the most famous architects of the 18th and early 19th centuries.
The spectacular sweeping building constructed in 1820 between Regent Street and Regent’s Park was commissioned by the Prince Regent, later King George IV, to house his closest friends and family.
Due to a combination of damage from World War 2 and poor rebuild in 1960, the Grade 1 listed building has been completely rebuilt to turn the office space back into residential accommodation.
The Regent’s Crescent development, involved not only the reconstruction of the facade to match John Nash’s original design but also a new contemporary building that sits behind, providing 67 luxury apartments, 9 garden villas, residential amenities, cinema, and spa.
The project required architectural ironmongery of the highest standard incorporating performance and appearance. Leading Architectural Ironmonger John Planck Ltd working in collaboration with Midgard, Millier London & PDP Architects selected SIMONSWERK UK door hinges. In total over 3,500 various TECTUS concealed hinges including the TE340, TE540, TE541 and the TE527 in Bronze metallic finish were specified to complement John Planck Ltd’s detailed bespoke door furniture and ironmongery schedule.
Tom Planck, Managing Director said:
“On a project with this level of finish and specification we knew that TECTUS hinges were the ideal choice. They have been used on a range of previous high-end schemes and we know that they provide the elegant, concealed appearance required by Architects & Interior Designers with the functionality and high load capacity that this project required”.
