Park Place, Ballards Lane
This former police station has been transformed into a development of lovely apartments. Once the site of investigations into notorious criminals, such as the Black Hand Gang, it is now a building where the tasteful decor speaks of calm and repose.
Drawing inspiration from nearby parks, the design for the apartments was characterised by neutral tones and natural materials. The result was to generate a quiet, peaceful elegance to the new homes.
Dorplan's stylish doorsets, with feature grooves and stunning matt black ironmongery, beautifully complemented this design and boasted a variety of features, including bespoke sizes, fire and smoke performance and PAS24 security.
Irene House, Balham
Irene House in Balham was a 1940s office block, formerly occupied by the DWP, converted to offer 77 1/2-bedroomed apartments, with a roof extension to create an additional 7 homes. Amenities including a residents’ club house with private dining and work space facilities were included.
The project delivered a distinctive transformation, offering contemporary looks that also incorporated many art deco elements inspired by the building’s original interior.
Dorplan supplied more than 400 factory-finished doors, delivered in 5 phases to support project schedules across the 6 floors of the building. The doors had a range of features in keeping with the ‘contemporary art deco’ look. Ladder-style feature grooves and square architraves were complemented by period-style ironmongery to give an incredibly stylish result.
The majority of the doors were FD30 or FD60 fire and smoke doors. The fire-rated PAS24/SBD apartment entrance doors were additionally acoustic-rated. All Dorplan’s fire and security doors come with the peace of mind offered by 3rd-party certification.
We’re proud to parade our work on this project, which transformed a former army barracks into a stunning development of new homes.
Dorplan supplied nearly 1,000 doorsets for the Millbrook project, in Mill Hill, North London.
This complex project had it all – the doors were very varied and the size of the project also changed over time, ending up around 30% bigger than originally anticipated. It was delivered in 26 lots over the course of a year.
It included fire and smoke PAS24E entrance doorsets in oak laminate, some of which were specially designed to incorporate electronic access control and failsafe mechanisms, and all the interior doors, including bespoke co-ordinating wardrobe doorsets.
A particular feature on many of the doorsets was the mitred and Hoffmann-jointed architraves, to offer increased accuracy and speed up installation.
Detailed planning at the start and strong partnerships between the Dorplan and contractor teams made all the difference and the project was delivered smoothly and on time.

A great view doesn’t come cheap, but there again, Dorplan’s feature doors don’t deserve anything less.
