The architectural metalwork department at Andy Thornton Ltd has recently completed the installation of a stunning new entrance canopy at The Rubens at the Palace, a Red Carnation Hotel in central London. Located on Buckingham Palace Road, only yards from the palace and just a short walk from Westminster Abbey, the majestic hotel, built in 1911, now has a grand entrance to match its four-star luxury status.

The resulting elliptical shaped canopy from the Yorkshire-based company's Architectural Metalwork department is manufactured in mild steel and aluminium and features laminated glass panels dropped into a convex metal frame, with a decorative crown and laser-cut gold-leafed name lettering. The structure has been finished in a weather-resistant epoxy powder-coat.

Now that the canopy has been unveiled, the reaction has been incredible. The hotel finally has an entrance to match its aristocratic grandeur and one befitting its perfect location in the heart of London’s tourist attractions.
