Ever thought of upcycling?
Case Study: India Buildings
Merlin was commissioned to upcycle the existing ironmongery so that this could be reused as part of a four-year regeneration of Liverpool’s Grade-II listed India Buildings, bringing it back to its former glory.
India Buildings was built between 1924 and 1932 and is the epitome of a product of a prosperous city looking to show off the success experienced in the roaring ’20s.
Each Pull Handle, Push Plate and individual ironmongery product we refurbished was made to a luxurious standard, with elegantly engraved scrolls that have been etched to embody the flamboyant character of the building. The minute detail of the scrolls meant that refinishing these products was no small task, however Merlin brought these back to their former glory.
Upcycling is an excellent way of retaining the style of the building through refurbishing original features.
