Arthur Stanley House

Revitalising History: CDC Engineering & Fabrication Ltd’s Contribution to Arthur Stanley House

Situated within the esteemed Charlotte Street conservation area, Arthur Stanley House stands as a beacon of revitalization in the heart of Fitzrovia, central London. Once a decaying 1960s block, this iconic building has undergone a remarkable transformation, thanks to the visionary efforts of ALLFORD HALL MONAGHAN MORRIS architects. Originally designed by TP Bennett Architects as part of the Middlesex Hospital estate, the building opened its doors in 1965, serving as a specialized center for physiotherapy.

Architectural Reimagination

The redevelopment of Arthur Stanley House into a mixed-use office and residential unit marks a significant milestone in the ongoing evolution of Fitzrovia. ALLFORD HALL MONAGHAN MORRIS architects reimagined the former hospital building, breathing new life into its aging façade while preserving its historic significance. The refurbishment project encompassed the transformation of the existing 8-storey structure, blending modern functionality with timeless architectural elegance.

Craftsmanship Unveiled

As subcontractors entrusted with a pivotal role in the redevelopment of Arthur Stanley House, CDC Engineering & Fabrication Ltd took the opportunity to contribute to this iconic project. Working closely with 4K Contracts Ltd, we were tasked with designing, manufacturing, and installing an 8-floor balustrade and oak handrail, adding a touch of sophistication to the building’s interior.

Precision in Process

The journey began at our factory in Essex, where skilled craftsmen meticulously crafted sections of the balustrade from mild steel, ensuring both durability and aesthetic appeal. Each component was carefully powder-coated to enhance its resilience against the elements while maintaining its sleek finish. Meanwhile, our team of artisans handcrafted solid timber smooth oak handrails, seamlessly blending tradition with modernity.
