Stapleford ParkMelton Mowbray, Leics. View project details
George Barnsdale manufactured 4 DS5 arched doorsets with a link screen complete with a door for the prestigious Stapleford Park Hotel.
The doorsets were to become part of the newly constructed Orangery which adjoins the Grand Hall. As the Orangery was to be used for celebrations, meetings and events, the doorsets had to comply with fire regulations. Therefore all of the doorsets were designed to be used as fire escapes.
Another important requirement for this project was to ensure that the Orangery blended in with the Grade I listed building. To achieve this, the doorset designs were modified to combine traditional aesthetics with modern performance.
As a result of these requirements, the large extension, including the Orangery was remarkably in-keeping with the existing church and building.
