Steel & Glass Balcony
CLIENT: Busser Howell
LOCATION: New York
DESIGN: Steel & Glass balcony
We received a request by the famous blind artist Busser Howell to fabricate a free standing balcony. This private backyard is rejuvenated by the presence of this freestanding structure, creating a canopy for the ground floor and balcony for the second story. We used blackened steel I-beams and structural steel to stay in harmony with the clean lined architecture. The structure stands daintily on the adjustable feet that are integrated into the legs. The tempered glass provides unobstructed views.
This an original design by Serett Metalworks. The balcony itself is free standing, separated from the home by an inch. It rests on load bearing levelers, making it a temporary structure that is independent of the building.
