Formerly the Westminster Fire Station, the Grade II listed building located in Victoria has recently undergone a massive refurbishment project. The Fire Station was originally built in 1906.
The project has seen the Edwardian building get transformed into apartments in the upper floor. On the ground floor is Mathura, a flagship restaurant from Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar.
This mixed-use development has been years in the making. It features a new building called Station House to be home to a number of the apartments. The project also includes a residential courtyard.
Station House has been designed in keeping with the rest of the development, staying true to the overall aesthetic of the project.
M-Tech Engineering designed, manufactured and installed a wrap around staircase to the restaurant area along with wall mounted timber handrails.
The wrap around staircase was manufactured using laser cut mild steel in varying thicknesses, with tread finishes to be supplied by others. These bolted on to the stringers and together to form a continuous flight of stairs.
The handrail brackets were coated in brass to ensure the style remains in-line with the restaurant’s theme. This was an ideal choice for the project, as a high end luxury restaurant should be matched with high end materials that exude class.
The project retains a number of features from the original 1906 building, some of which are located near the staircase supplied by M-Tech. Original tiles can still be found on the walls some 115 years later.
