Grosvenor Street

Nick and Lucy, Cowie Montgomery Architects had a very clear picture as to what they wanted when it came to the natural stone at Grosvenor Street. For the common areas, the entrance, lobby and staircase was to be the whitest most consistent limestone we could find. We offered our Crema Perla, it was certainly a fresh light, white option but comes with its fair share of shells and fossils. It was specified but we had to try to use the most fossil free beds to achieve the architects design intent.


The centrepiece for us was most certainly the beautiful waterjet cut pattern of Crema Perla and Alpine White. Nick and Lucy wanted to create a floor that wasn’t the familiar chequerboard pattern or angular geometries, something more modern that could flow from the historic areas into the new. The building was famous in the mid-nineteenth century as a silk merchant and silk dressmaker’s business so we looked at woven patterns that have a flow. As the house was built in 1723 by a learned classical architect they also looked to Ancient Rome and the mosaic floors in the Baths of Caracalla. They also thought of the spears that you find on railings in Mayfair because the pattern needed to tie in with the metalwork on the project.

For the bathroom and shower areas, it was a more traditional affair for sure with Italian white marbles all the eye could see but ever so effective. For quality assurance, we dry laid the Carrara floor tiles area by area in our own Inspection Hub for best results. The bespoke Statuarietto panels for the shower enclosures and Carrara vanity tops were all cut in our London factory for the best control and enabling a fast turnaround.
