Steeling A Match At The Brewery

Hackney Brew Co

A vibrant brewery in London, Hackney Church Brew Co,  has been given the steel star treatment by Steel Window Services & Supplies.

The company is a member of the Steel Window Association. The project was run by Red Deer Architects Home. It entailed providing W20 arched, headed external screens, along with interior doors and screens.

Over 80 man days, the company supplied and fitted the large entrance screens, two large external screens at the rear of the building, four internal WC doors and one internal double door set.

The W20 suite features an industrial patina finish which offers a stunning urban aesthetic echoing the building's heritage whilst also reflecting the nature of this vibrant , fashionable district of London.  The silicone fronted glazing replicates perfectly the authentic look and feel of traditional steel windows.


 “Set within two large Victorian brick arches near Hackney Central, this project involved the installation of a large brewery in one arch and a dispense bar and kitchen in the other. Set up in affiliation with St John at Hackney Church the design took stimulus from the industrial process of brewing and the physical aspects of the church.”

Industrial aesthetic

"Large double height metal framed glazing was thus installed to create an etherial yet industrial aesthetic for the façade. Sizable solid timber trusses were then installed to mimic traditional church construction techniques," continues Che Tizard.
