THE PLACE TO BE
As soon as the morning sun rises above the skyline of London, the descender fronts, which make up most of the building’s façade, disappear silently into the ground, turning the interior into a covered outdoor terrace that is open to all sides.
The window units consist of three HIRT descender fronts that boast impressive dimensions. Each element is 8115 mm long and 2950 mm high with a radius of 8000 mm and a weight of 2000 kg.
The Duke of York Restaurant acts as a trend-setter for the UK architectural scene and already caused a stir ahead of its official opening in autumn 2019. We at HIRT swiss descending windows are proud to be involved in this project with our sales partner Kolleger Metallbau.
