Best Overall Cast Stone Project Award: HIGHLY COMMENDED
UKCSA Full Member Haddonstone Limited was approached by Octagon Developments to provide high quality cast stonework for their new development on Bishops Row in Fulham, London.
Bishops Row is a terrace of nine elegant houses running parallel to the River Thames. The deceptively spacious four and five bedroom townhouses are centred around family living with high specification finishes. The design features innovative outdoor spaces including courtyard gardens, balconies and terraces overlooking the river.
The location and prestige of the Bishops Row development required high attention to detail and a luxurious finish. Haddonstone’s team worked closely with Octagon Developments to ensure that the stonework would reflect the prestigious vision for the development.
Haddonstone’s TecStone wet-cast cast stone material was used because it provides a smooth finish and does not weather as quickly as standard cast stone. This was the perfect choice for this luxurious property development. The façade of each property has designs ranging from porticos, parapets and balustrading to cladding, pier caps and window surrounds.
Each property includes an impressive entrance walkway through a walled garden featuring pier caps and copings manufactured by Haddonstone’s skilled team. A portico with a balustraded balcony was used to provide a grand entrance into each property. The private walled gardens to the rear of Bishops Row were also enhanced with Haddonstone’s capping stones and cladding to provide a more contemporary feel.
Whilst some of Haddonstone’s standard products worked well for the project there was also a need to produce custom-made stonework to suit the high specification design requirements.
