The Old Post Office, Leeds
A landmark building in the heart of City Square, the Old Post Office was unsurprisingly afforded Grade II listed status prior to its conversion into a high class restaurant and apart-hotel. Originally constructed in 1896, the building has retained many of its original features – particularly the ornate window designs. As a result, special care was needed to introduce effective draft and thermal insulation, whilst respecting the fabric of the building.
Now home to Residence 6, a five star luxury hotel featuring 23 serviced apartments and two top restaurants, it’s as great place to stay, being extremely close to shopping, business and transport hubs. Of course, nearby traffic also means noise, but Granada hinged units, fitted with stadip silence glass, helped to reduce noise levels by over 50dB (Rw).
The discreet system also provides exceptional thermal insulation, concealed multi-point locking and clean, minimal site lines. Fixing methods are concealed and a sympathetic range of finishing trims and mouldings assist in blending the secondary glazing into traditional surroundings, whether square, curved or arched.
