Having already installed the high level “eyelid canopies you see in the image alongside we have now completed this project with the installation of two recessed traditional blinds. These blinds are unusual in that they are not retro-installed into wooden boxes which are usually face fixed to the building but are recessed within it. Working closely with the designers and shopfitters we have provided patterns to ensure that, when the shop front was constructed, a reveal was created of precisely the correct dimensions into which the awnings could be installed. The result is extremely neat and all the usual features of a traditional shop blind are retained including the hard wood lath and the galvanised clout nails for retaining the cover. Iron work is powder coated for durability in our own London based powder coating facility and, as always, installation was carried out in accordance within the latest Contractor Health and Safety regulations.

Sloane square was formerly known as ‘Hans Town’, laid out in 1771 to a plan of by Henry Holland Snr. and Henry Holland Jnr. Both the square and Hans Town were named after Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753), an Irish doctor who, jointly with his appointed trustees, owned the land at the time. The fountain named Venus Fountain in the centre of the square was constructed in 1953, designed by sculptor Gilbert Ledward. The fountain depicts Venus, and on the basin section of the fountain is a relief which depicts King Charles II and the prolific celebrity figure of the Restoration period, Nell Gwynn.
