Finsbury Square is a historic green space on the fringes of the City of London.

The redevelopment of the existing building (Finwell House) included re-furbishment, part demolition, new extension to the front of the building and top floors and new external cladding.

Albion Stone supplied blocks of Jordans Basebed and Jordans Whitbed for cladding which was installed by Stonewest.

Albion Stone and Stonewest worked closely with Wates Construction and the Professional team to finalise the design of the new stonework elements.

The elegant Portland stone-clad facades are punched by areas of clear glazing which open up views into the double-height reception hall and workspaces above.
