Marlesbury awnings were originally developed for the commercial market and based on a traditional design. However, the elegant design incorporating fine metalwork and classic lines means that it is equally suited to domestic installations where there is a requirement for a traditional appearance without the cumbersome look of some commercial awnings. These Marlesbury awnings are installed on to the frontage of an villa in Maida Vale and the awning on the front window , has been finely blended into the shape of the fenestration. Special note should be taken of the interface of the awning box and window facia. Our craftsmen have skilfully managed to shape the Marlesbury awning box into the curved lines of the window. This was done by the creation of a template of the facia on site then transposing this on to the working substrates’ thereby creating a bespoke, perfect finish.
The Marlesbury awning is available in a number of optional configurations and limitless colours, it can be of fixed or retractable construction and manufactured with either a purpose-built recess or with the traditional box finish. We also offer an elegant exposed roller-system for when a more “brutale” appearance is preferred and this can look particularly stunning when combined with some of the more modern anthracite metal finishes which are currently used in modern architecture.
Maida Vale is a smart residential district comprising the northern part of Paddington in west London, west of St John’s Wood and south of Kilburn. It is part of the City of Westminster. The name is derived from the Hero of Maida Inn which used to be on Edgware Road near the Regent’s Canal. The pub was named after General Sir John Stuart, who was made Count of Maida by King Ferdinand IV of Naples and III of Sicily, after the victory at the Battle of Maida in 1806.
