These quite minimalist entry gates have an almost 'masculine' feel to them
This pair of hand forged entry gates was designed for a client who wanted them to have 'no gratuitous decoration at all', but for them still to be in a style appropriate to the client's property. Although it was quite a tall order to fulfill such an apparently contradictory brief, we clearly succeeded as the client was delighted with the end result.
These entry gates illustrate the highly collaborative nature of our design process. Since our client had a very clear idea of what forged features he did and did not want, we created the final design drawings for the gates with the client present, watching what Tim was doing on screen and directing him to move things up or down, to change the radius of an arc, or to add or remove features, etc. Although this level of involvement is not typical, it underlines our keenness and ability to create ironwork that it truly yours - not ours.
