The Victorian Awning
The Victorian Awning is the original British shop awning that first appeared in the late Victorian era. Recognised as a design classic, the Victorian Awning is expertly hand-crafted in our workshop. Aesthetically and from a practical perspective, the qualities of this traditional awning have stood the test of time and its versatility also makes it an attractive and preferred option with design teams and architects alike. The Victorian Awning is often the recommended choice for historic and listed buildings, but this heritage awning also works beautifully in more contemporary setting.
The Greenwich Awning
The Greenwich Awning is a modern interpretation of the classic French window coverings of the nineteenth century. The continentally-inspired Greenwich Awning has a simple understated beauty with classic clean lines that compliments both modern and traditional fascias. Its classic elegance has made it a desirable solution for many exclusive brands and shop fronts. Every Greenwich Awning is designed and custom-built by hand in our workshop.

The Marlesbury is based on an art nouveau awning we discovered hidden on a significant Grade 1 listed building in London less than a decade ago. The Marlesbury Awning works beautifully on both modern and traditional fascia’s. The Marlesbury has a minimalist aesthetic that uses simple, classic lines to create an awning that is elegant, but also strong enough for modern application. Every Marlesbury Awning is designed and custom-built by hand in our workshop.
