When one window corroded causing the glass to crack, Dorothea Restorations was asked to manufacture a new unit.

The Dorothea team overcame several challenges in creating a new mild steel window to match the 1920s original. Not only was the glass curved along its length and arched at the top, but sill also sloped down. The size of the main pane was a further challenge, being larger than the maximum available size of glass. To overcome this, the Dorothea team developed a new joining technique specifically for this project.
