Philip Payne Goes Gothic
Adding to its impressive a back catalogue of some of Britain’s finest architectural treasures Philip Payne have completed supply of emergency lighting to the recently completed restoration works at Strawberry Hill, following a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Considered one of the finest surviving examples of Georgian Gothic architecture and interior decoration Strawberry Hill is a Grade I-listed building.
Located in Twickenham, Strawberry Hill was Horace Walpole’s experiment in Gothic revival which to this day is much talked about by architectural scholars.
To ensure that emergency fixtures, that are required now that the building has opened it’s doors to the public, impose as little as possible, Payne have introduced the notion of portable equipment. The free standing signs can be placed in position when public access is permitted in and removed or relocated dependant of the event, thus not permanent imposing on the environment.
In areas where escape routes are fixed product from the Payne Architectural range has been selected to minimize the impact on the building.
