We should know, we created them…
One of our biggest challenges to date, in terms of size at least, was crafting the grand 4.5m sold copper and Tasmanian Oak entrance doors for Perth’s QT Hotel.
These doors really set the scene for the entire QT experience, from the moment people enter. With such an important function, the designers knew they needed someone who could pull off this complex job to the highest possible standard, and so choose Handwerk from an array of candidates.
Challenge accepted! And what a BIG challenge. These doors were of epic proportions.Each door weights 500kg. Copper standing, seam cladding, working with expensive Tasmanian oak – there was no room for error.
We built them in 3 stages. We made them at the workshop then took it all apart to bring to site. We hung the frame and then copper cladded the doors on site. We also custom designed and made the intercom plates to go with the door.
These spectacular doors remain one of the QT Hotel’s major design features and we were glad Handwerk got to play a part in the creation of this signature space. We were thrilled to be commissioned to build these doors and, while we love all the jobs we work on, this remains one of our proudest accomplishments.
