Restoration

The replacement of windows and doors in restoration requires a delicate balance. On one hand, it must take into consideration the aesthetic aspect and respect for artistic heritage whilst on the other hand, it is necessary to abide by safety codes and requirements.

L’Officina combines the extremely minimal styles of old steel windows and doors with the most advanced performance to guarantee security, long service and compliance with environmental standards. Our restoration projects revive the elegance and motif of the old “fine steel profile” for verandas, winter gardens, doors and bow windows, while keeping with Australian standards and compliance.

Metal finishes

Our range of windows and doors can be manufactured from any of the following frame materials: galvanised steel, stainless steel, corten steel and brass. If a patina finish is chosen, depending on the colour and tone that best suits the project, each window and door goes through a final patina process with organic materials to achieve the unique aged finish. A protective wax can be applied to deter changes of the patina.

Substation Clarence

The Clarence Street Electrical Substation facade was restored through replicating and replacing elements of the facade, and by restoring finishes on original pieces. Our handmade brass pieces allow the heritage style of historic buildings like the Clarence Street Substation to live on in our contemporary world. The original window frames and fittings of the building were replaced with new frames that were carefully handmade to match the original specifications. This restoration project aimed to bring back the heritage look of the building, resulting in polished or patina finishes for the replacements.
