Scope of Project:
Office and retail development
Szerelmey & stoneCIRCLE
30 Broadwick Street (formerly St Lawrence House) is a 90,000 sq ft office and retail development situated in the heart of Soho.
Szerelmey installed Portland Grove Whitbed columns, window dressings, band coursings and Fancy Beach Whitbed copings on the Livonia Street elevation. The stone was of varying thicknesses and non-load bearing.
The façade and lobby featured panels by artist Sasha Holzer. stoneCIRCLE laser scanned the wooden panels carved by Sasha and then enlarged the 3D files so that its CNC machine could accu-rately carve them in Jordans Basebed. Each panel was carefully finished by hand. There are 5 internal panels which measured 1960mm in height x 764mm wide and 18 external panels.
Albion Stone provided over 450m² of Portland Stone, including Fancy beach Whitbed copings, Grove Whitbed window surrounds and Jordans Basebed for the artist’s panels.
The building has been given a BREEAM Excellent rating.
