Szerelmey used a variety of materials on this project. Externally, the front elevation comprises Portland stone cladding to the eye catching central bay flanked by brick facades embellished with Portland stone window surrounds, cornices and balconies. Cornish grey granite at ground floor plinth and railings completes the final traditional feel of this building.
Darren Moore of Szerelmey commented: “Interestingly, the horizontal bed joints between the stone courses on the façade were specially designed to incorporate powder coated metal feature strips. These were carefully built in as work proceeded and set the building apart from its neighbours.”
Internally Szerelmey was responsible for the Bateig Limestone flooring in the offices’ main reception together with New Portland Stone wall linings to mirror the stone on the building’s front façade. While in the residential entrance Szerelmey installed Portuguese Moleanos stone flooring.
Szerelmey’s work also included large format porcelain wall and floor finishes to the office toilet zones, and the bathrooms in the residential apartments.
Work was carried out for the client, Sackville Street Partnerships Ltd. The main contractor was Galliford Try, while the architect was JMArchitects.
