British Telecom – Oswestry
Glass and Bronze at BT Oswestry
Glass panels by Graham Jones, an external bronze abstract by Dennis Westwood and paintings by Charlotte Cornish at BT’s latest Workstyle offices.
Graham Jones’ impressive piece for the reception area consists three panels of 12mm toughened glass, each measuring 1.43m x 2.7m, etched on one side and colour enamelled on the other.
The second consists of two screens, slumped glass in front and 12mm toughened pre-sandblasted glass, acid-etched, behind. It both affords light and provides privacy to the internal theatre area.
Dennis Westwood’s external bronze provides a powerful contrast. Entitled ‘Infineum II’ it is cast in silicon bronze and stands 1.4 metres high on a granite base. It is sited to be viewed both from the external approach and from within the atrium.
