Room Dividers


Creating privacy, light (or dark!) and a sound night’s sleep in Beaufort Park’s luxurious Manhattan apartments


Beaufort Park, St George

New Apartments Beaufort Park in Colindale is one of North West London’s most exciting developments by St George. (

Now in its 15th year, and still evolving and growing, this thriving community is an ideal environment in which to enjoy London life. There is an array of shops, bars and restaurants at the heart of the site, as well as health and fitness facilities.

The multi-phased scheme incorporates many different types of apartments, all with comfort, light and contemporary living at the core of the different dwellings.

Draks and St George enjoy a close, long-standing relationship and have been working together on the Manhattan apartments here for over twelve years! In fact, the sliding room dividers were developed specifically for Beaufort Park and were designed jointly with the Draks and St George teams. Today, hundreds of these beautiful dividers have been installed at Beaufort Park – and they have even been rolled out to other St George sites.

The apartments clearly comprise one living space so intelligence and imagination in layout is key. The movable sliding room dividers are perfect for providing privacy, and maximising light, while creating a “bedroom” which is separate to the living area.

Originally, the room dividers’ frames were in anodised silver. More recently, black powder-coated frames have been introduced to provide a striking contrast with the diffused laminated glass infill panels. The dividers slide against a wall for ease of installation and operation, while the top track is recessed so that the whole assembly enjoys clean, no-fuss lines.

Paul Jeal, Project Director at St George, explains “From the outset, we needed a sleek way of adding privacy to our Manhattan apartments. The inclusion of the Draks screen ticked all the boxes and continues to be used to enhance these fantastic homes. They are easy to install, require very little or no maintenance and now come in black to suit our new palette.”
