BURLINGTON STONE CREATES STUNNING RECEPTION IN NEW CORPORATE HQ
Stunning natural stone clad walls and flooring supplied by the UK’s leading producer, Burlington, adorn the interior of York House - a six storey corporate headquarters for leading real estate investors, British Land, located on an imposing island site close to Marble Arch, London.
Specified by London-based architects, EPR Architects Ltd, Burlington’s striking silver grey Brandy Crag stone is featured as internal flooring and skirting throughout the main entrance, reception area and lift lobbies from ground to fifth floors. In addition, the same stone has been used as cladding to create a stunning backdrop to the walls of the same areas.
Specified for its natural beauty and inherent technical features, including durability and low maintenance, Burlington’s Brandy Crag stone in a sanded finish has been used to create 600 x300 x 20mm paving. Skirtings have also been created using the same stone.
The wall finishes are a textured finish and laid in various lengths, widths and heights and are tied back to the main structure with stainless steel restraining brackets. To create a striking visual effect, the stone is fixed in a random boned pattern with a 10mm offset between courses and a nominal 25mm cavity width.
Commenting on behalf of Burlington Slate, Joint Managing Director, Malcolm Hatch said: “We are delighted that our stone is featured within this prestigious development and are particularly impressed with its use as interior cladding. This project is testimony to the beauty and versatility of Burlington’s stone.”
In addition to 90,000 sq ft of office space, York House also includes 11,000 sq ft of retail space and 22 residential units.
