Princess Park Manor

Victorian dressings replicated

A Victorian hospital building at Friern Barnet has been sympathetically converted into luxury apartments by developer Comer Homes. A wide range of cast stone architectural details from UKCSA Full Member Marshalls Bricks and Masonry (formerly PD Edenhall / GreconUK) was used to re-create the Italianate splendour of the original elevations.

The cast stone details – which include columns and their entablatures, plinths, quoins, cornices, dentil string courses, window surrounds and balustrading – were designed in conjunction with the developer’s architect. Although bespoke, the degree of repetition on the mouldings led to economies of scale.
