The reception area of an architectural practice doubles up as a calling card showcasing the company’s style and expertise. Leading architectural, interiors and town planning practice, TP Bennett, wanted a floor that would create the right first impression in their visitors’ minds.
The offices reside in an Edwardian warehouse in central London which has been converted to provide modern office space. Using a striking British stone, Kimmeridge, was considered to echo the values of the practice and emphasise their creative and design-led approach.
This extremely hard limestone was used for the steps and flooring in the main reception area, laid in random lengths and widths with grip strip on step edges. It is well suited to high footfall areas and in particular commercial environments. The deep blue to grey base with flecks of light brown and fossil markings makes it a versatile limestone which complements a broad spectrum of design styles and applications.
