Derry Farm House Case Study

Glass terrace balustrades installed for residential property in Shenstone

Enhancing Safety and Luxury: SMART Balustrades at Derry Farm House, Shenstone

Project Overview

The project at Derry Farm House revolved around transforming a rooftop terrace into a safe, visually appealing, and functional space. SMART Balustrades played a pivotal role in this endeavour by designing and installing a structural glass balustrade system that would attach to the inside of a parapet wall, securing the terrace while preserving the scenic views.


The primary challenge was to provide a balustrade solution that met the safety needs of the homeowner without obstructing the breathtaking views from the terrace. The absence of a balustrade made the space inaccessible and potentially hazardous, highlighting the importance of an elegant yet robust solution.
