It seems a long time ago now that CAM first designed a gate to the entrance of renowned architect Richard Burton’s home – however thanks to his annual participation in the London’s Open House event, it’s clear to see the project has stood the test of time.
In the 1980s CAM worked both with Richard Burton and his cutting edge firm ABK, already a fan of our unique style, Richard Burton asked CAM to apply their ‘water ripple’ pattern in a novel way to form his bespoke circular gate!
By utilising this effect on both sides of the gate, CAM were able to create a design that allowed partial visibility through the gate – only from a side view. This facilitated the ‘open’ approach that Richard Burton sought. The gate incorporated an offset pivot, so that it could open and close around a tree in Richard Burton’s front garden.
