11,458 square foot refurbishment in Clerkenwell.

Eco Friendly Tiles provided products for an 11,458 square foot office space tucked away in the centre of Clerkenwell that has undergone a recent refurbishment. Taking inspiration from the warehouses and work shops surrounding its location, the architects opted for a style that would compliment and reflect the neighbourhood. The stripped back look that has become common place was adopted, leaving raw materials from the building such as concrete and steel beams exposed. The rest of the build was styled around these stylistic features with the other materials being chosen for their ability to match and compliment the more industrial style.

In order to create a smooth flowing transition from the interior to the exterior, Eco Friendly Tiles teamed up with its sister company Eco Friendly Facades to ensure the interior and exterior would match perfectly. The striking Shannon VS.39 (039 if you’re after the facade) from the Shannon range appeared as a feature on both the exterior and the interior of the build. The oxidised metal look slab brings a rustic combination of oranges and browns over a dark grey base which added a stylistic dash of turbulent colour. Rebelling against the darker tones of 003 on the exterior and the smooth greys and off whites of the interior, VS.39 acts as a clear beacon bringing people cleanly from the entrance up to the reception desk. The bespoke pieces cut specifically to create the eye-catching mosaic feature wall are hard to miss upon entering the open reception, a perfect example of creating a clean indoor-outdoor flow.

The weathered concrete look of the exterior can be found in smaller quantities throughout the interior as Shannon 11.4.E. Used as a skirting, the warm grey tones bring hints of the exterior indoors without overpowering the well lit, welcoming reception area. Another of the Shannon range that features in the refurbishment is the white 10.2.A.

If you’re considering creating a smooth transition from exterior to interior on your next build, you can’t go past the combination of Eco Friendly Tiles and Eco Friendly Facades. We are able to match the interior and exterior colours perfectly while also providing a strong, durable product.
