Irene House was a former government building in London located on Balham High Road. The building will be converted into Build to rent apartments. Not far from Balham Station with access to the underground and the Southern Railway the development is in a desirable location for residents.

Irene’s house will be converted into 84 new studio, 1 & 2-bed apartments whilst keeping some original interiors to add character to the building.  The building is a 5-story building that is predominantly black, white and gold giving the old government building a modern touch.

The Safety Letterbox Company worked alongside interior designers to create a mailbox that had a high-end look and that was practical and completely secure for their residents.  There were a few options presented by The Safety Letterbox Company and the client chose the Com2 steel door. The Com2 Steel Door is an in-front/out-front product that is horizontal which is easy to bank and can be wall recessed.

Our COM2 mailboxes are normally wall recessed but can also be wall-mounted and freestanding. In this development, the COM2 was wall recessed in the main lounge area which is easy access to their residents. The product was also banked 8 high by 11 wide for a perfect fit in the wall.

At the Safety Letterbox Company, we take pride in offering full customisable mailboxes that can fit any design brief. Irene House is now a converted government building so the mailboxes needed to fit the aesthetic of the building. The product was polyester coated in a matt jet BLACK (RAL 9005) and had standard engraving with a gold infill matching the interiors of the building. Irene House also customized the lock choosing the QHDK LOCK. The QHDK is a highly versatile lock that you can pick the colour and material used to make a perfect bespoke option. Irene House chooses to have a matt brass finish to their lock giving the mailboxes an extra WOW factor.
