Iron Gate Transom

This project required the adaptation of an existing window design to fit a similar opening. Situated across the front of an inset vestibule, a new gate protects a small porch entrance with a decorative doorway of ironwork forming a double transom. The frame of the gate follows the barreled ceiling where it divides the opening into two curved sections. Just inside this alcove there exists a fine leaded glass window–a transom–over the front door itself.

The task was to re-create the existing transom using colored glass and identical oval bevels, and adapt it for the double transom opening above the gate doorway 5 feet in front of the original.

The original window was constructed of clear glass featuring several different textures. By selecting colored glass of the same texture, the window became a colored echo of the original.
