Case Study: Twickenham Film Studios
Project Synopsis: Clement steel screens create a sensational backdrop to roof terrace at iconic film studios
Twickenham Studios was established in 1913 and is one of the UK’s oldest and most celebrated film and TV studios. Many classic films have been shot at the studios such as The Italian Job, A Fish Called Wanda, An American Werewolf In London, Ghandi and Zulu along with most of the Beatles movies.
The Lounge is Twickenham Studio’s new rooftop bar. Located at the top of the main building, it offers beautiful panoramic views over Richmond Park.
This fabulous new facility includes a roof terrace which you access through brand new Clement steel screens. Made from strong EB24 steel sections, they are robust, but also incredibly slim and elegant. These bespoke doors have genuine T bars and a high glass specification, including Guardian Sun Guard offering solar protection and an argon gas filled cavity which improves thermal efficiency.
To complement the steel screens and doors The Lounge also boasts a beautiful, matching Clement steel window. All the steel windows, doors and screens have been polyester powder coated with one colour, Graphite Black, on the inside to complement the interior and another colour, Anthracite Grey, on the outside.
Commercial Director Andrew Boswell commented: “Since The Lounge opened its doors, it has provided a ‘wow’ factor for staff, tenants and production crews alike. It is also highly sought after as a private hire venue for wrap parties, industry functions and birthdays and with the doors open on to the terrace of a summer’s evening, there is no better place to be in this part of London.”
