New Scotland Yard

Signbox Ltd

When the Metropolitan Police moved from St James’s Park to Victoria Embankment in 2017, Signbox was tasked with replacing the iconic sign that had been seen steadily rotating outside the building and to supply and install bespoke LED illuminated stainless steel lettering for the new HQ’s pavilion roof. For such high profile signage, everything had to be designed and engineered to exacting detail, specified to be highly robust and durable. Fabricated from stainless steel and clad in anodised aluminium, the sign is halo illuminated and rotates at an optimal speed, to avoid blurring or distortion on television screens.

Knightsbridge Penthouse

Bulthaup Mayfair

This bulthaup b3 kitchen in a chic, Knightsbridge penthouse incorporates a smart dining space for entertaining. Matt lacquer in Kaolin was chosen for the island and tall furniture to allow for a light fresh aesthetic. Pocket doors conceal all of the functional storage and appliances so they are out of sight but handy when needed. The rough-sawn, oak furniture on the rear wall is suspended from the b3 framework so that it 'floats' above the floor - our designer worked closely with Lab Architects on detailing the porcelain feature wall cladding around the structure.

Townhouse Essex

Bulthaup Mayfair

This bulthaup b3 kitchen in laser edged laminate is the ultimate in minimalist simplicity. Sitting in the rear extension of a traditional townhouse in Colchester, the platinum grey cabinets provide functional storage and appliance housings in a simple U-shape with a laminate worktop overhang for bar seating. The walls, free of high level cabinets accentuate the height of the pitched ceiling with its central skylight bringing natural light into the centre of the space. Careful choice of materials and appliances along with meticulous attention to detail have resulted in a beautiful, minimal project. Architectural photography by Alexander James

Sika Liquid Plastics

The off-white composite stone worktop on the island blends with the kaolin base cabinets and back panels to convey the sense of a single piece of furniture. photos Alexander James

The archway entrance was failing due to inadequate support causing distortion of the arch pier, the front door to jam and masonry cracking in the archway walls. HD BowTies were installed through the front elevation stonework and the first two floor joists to provide lateral restraint. HeliBars were bonded into the mortar beds to create masonry beams which assisted in distributing the loads above the arch.
