Case study Burrell street – UrbanSalon
Thursday 3rd January 2013

Burrell street’s new NHS clinic was designed by UrbanSalon and is located under a Viaduct in central London. The facade of the building is impressively glazed and decorated with illustrated visuals. Coupled with the glazing, UrbanSalon chose to use a European Oak entrance door with a vision panel and found the Terano V to be suitable in terms of looks and security.


The Terano E80 was set into a double door configuration and the glazed vision panel was adapted to be wider …

…to help compliment the rest of the facade. In addition to security, another requirement for the door was automatic door closers and an extra security lock was added because of the nature of the building. 

The result is a beautiful building, the brick work of the viaduct leading to Blackfriars in central London, is complimented by the warmth and richness of the hardwood European oak Terano V set within a frameless glass structure. The NHS clinic for Guy’s and St Thomas Hospitals ends out being an interesting and fun place to arrive at, and makes for a change from the standard unadventurous architecture often found in public sector hospital buildings.
