Project Description

EMPIRE HOUSE

This six-storey building, situated in Cardiff Bay, stands as a monument to Wales’ great industrial past. It was built by Cardiff architects Percy Thomas and Ivor Jones in 1926 and soon became a hub for the thriving coal export trade. 80 years after the coal industry’s heyday however, this grade II listed building stood derelict.

ad hoc designs was commissioned to design and install a cantilever staircase with floating steps to the two storey penthouse suite, as well as the glass and stainless steel balustrade on the roof terrace.
