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 surrounds, band courses and Fancy Beach Whitbed copings on the Livonia Street elevation. The stone was of varying thicknesses and non-load bearing.
The façade and lobby features panels by artist Sasha Holzer. stoneCIRCLE laser scanned the wooden panels carved by Sasha, then enlarged the 3D files so their CNC machine could accurately carve them in Jordans Basebed. Each panel was carefully finished by hand. There are five internal panels measuring 1960mm in height x 764mm wide and 18 external panels.
Albion Stone provided over 450m² of Portland Stone in varying thicknesses, including Fancy Beach Whitbed copings, Grove Whitbed window surrounds and Jordans Basebed for the artist’s panels.
Portland Stone supplied by us can contribute three BREEAM credits when used as external or internal walls. The building was awarded BREEAM Excellent and was the 2017 winner of the OAS Awards for ‘Best West End New Build’.
