Blanc de Bierges supplied smooth cast stone paving and step units as part of a two unit residential development in Central London.
The bespoke products were supplied as part of a concept designed by Jeffrey Bell Architects, based in Manchester.
Located on the edge of Hampstead, London, the development at Hermitage Lane comprised of two large luxury semi-detached houses. The aspiration was to create two luxury homes in which space, light, materiality, and detail of design was paramount. Crucial to achieving this was the quality of product and material, both internally and externally, which is why Blanc de Bierges quality products were chosen.
The project was carried out in Spring 2017 and saw Blanc de Bierges supply the paving (in a shade of in Portland) in two thicknesses, 38mm and 50mm (the 38mm thick paving units were laid onto a paving support system) and integral tread and riser step units.
The contractor, KEA Developments, installed the steps, which formed the side access to the rear of the properties and also formed landscaped areas to the rear.
Approximately 170m2 of paving was used in total for the project and the total number of units laid to complete the brief was 700.
The landscaped elements play an important role within the scheme due to the complexity of arrangement, site constraints, and connection between internal and external spaces of each house.
Morgan Grennan, from Jeffrey Bell Architects, said: “Both the Blanc De Bierges paving and bespoke step modules where ideal to fulfil the brief as they gave design flexibility, was cost effective, but importantly provided a high quality finished product.
“The design and development process was effortless as the Blanc De Bierges staff were very helpful at every step. We will not hesitate in working with the company again.”
