Embassy chic

Dormakaba was appointed by developer and contractor Ballymore to manufacture and install folding glass sliding wall systems at the Embassy Gardens, part of the Nine Elms development in Battersea, South London.

Embassy Gardens is the residential and commercial centrepiece of the Nine Elms area regeneration, consisting of luxury apartments on a site that will offer residents a host of one-off leisure facilities such as the Sky Pool, a transparent 25m swimming pool that will bridge two of the residential buildings, an exclusive cinema, and other exclusive leisure, fitness and business facilities.

Dormakaba installed 108 sets of its FSW-G glass folding sliding wall system within the residential units that have their own internal winter garden.

The FSW-G system is a minimalist, yet robust system allowing maximum visibility through the glass panels, with top and bottom rails on each panel for maximum stability. The folding movement creates a concertina effect, for ease of opening and closing, with a concise parked stack when opened.
