Battersea Power Station

An eye-catching centre piece, featuring high-performance natural concrete supplied by Strata Tiles, creates a striking feature at Battersea power station.

As part of a larger renovation project, the grade II listed building had undergone a major transformation to revamp the existing architecture whilst maintaining the industrial heritage.

Architects WilkinsonEyre were tasked with refurbishing the mixed-use building, and opted for a design scheme which reserved certain elements and materials like concrete, glass and exposed steel but integrated new design interventions.

Trinity was the perfect choice for this project as it explored the depths of meticulous design and has natural and aesthetically pleasing characteristic that influences its appearance in a graceful manner, evoking a contrast between old and new.

This range combines three geometric shapes – a triangle, a parallelogram and a trapeze – which direct attention, and structure the plane to be in line with the space design concept that is installed amongst it.

Trinity is an extremely durable and resistant material as it is reinforced with high-density fibre making the surface protected from water and stain damage.

Harrods Phase 2

A striking bespoke design featuring natural stone mosaic tiles supplied by Strata creates an eye-catching feature at the iconic Harrods flagship store.

The 900m² marble mosaic floor had been designed to emulate a seashell’s “free flowing” format. Detailed floor patterns were handmade from natural stone mosaic chips to achieve the most organic and simple appearance and to easily incorporate the Harrods logo.

In Phase 2, Strata worked with the designers FMA to evolve the recognisable H logo in the seasonal books department. The new customised version of the logo matches the original black and white tones of the previous phase 1 logo but in a reversal pattern. FMA opted for the Strata’s Volakis and Black Tulip marble natural stone range as they are staple colours for a modern and sleek look. 

During the manufacturing process, Strata selected the stone to provide an agreed tonal variation within the materials. Once this was completed Strata began working on creating samples of the curved moulds required to produce the repeating fan pattern for the floors. These samples of the selected Volkais Stone and black Tulip were sent for approval by the design team and the client, and once completed the mosaic production began.

The mosaic was supplied as circular patterns divided into equal sections for ease of installation, all of the material was pre-treated with Fila MP90 Eco to ensure the stone was protected during the installation process, a second coat was applied prior to grouting to give complete day to day protection to the stone.  

The delivery to site was completed by mid January 2020 and the entire supply and installation of 900m² of mosaic was carried out over a couple of weeks – the seasonal books department officially opened in mid February 2020.

Amarone

Tubular brass cocktail bar, Technical marble floors and dark walnut wood accent details feature within Amarone, a vibrant Italian restaurant in Aberdeen.

Taking inspiration from some of the finest central cocktail bars in the world, designers on the Amarone project looked to combine mid-century modern design with a contemporary dining experience.

Strata worked closely with the designers at DSG Di Maggio Design Group to select tiles which effortlessly fit with the restaurants vision. Using marble tiles from the Strata Elements Technical stone range, the designers selected 3 colour tones which harmoniously tie in with the restaurant furnishing.

The multi-size modular floor tiles selected; 60×120, 60×60 & 30×120, display visible marble and terrazzo flecks bring a touch of sophistication to the environment.

Made from carefully selected marble and resin, the high quality technical stone surface is both hard wearing and easy to maintain. The range also utilises marble waste from natural stone quarries which gives the tile excellent eco credentials. 

To achieve a PTV +36 on this project Strata tiles supplied the collection in a Honed 80 finish.

245 Hammersmith Road

Strata tiles were pleased to collaborate with Sheppard Robson on the tiling specification for their recent £115 million renovation project.

Having worked with Sheppard Robson Architects since 2016, Strata Tiles helped transform the old Hammersmith property to new high-end private offices, and alluring co-working spaces, by supplying 250m² of uniquely sophisticated concrete wall cladding to the reception walls, staircases and lift lobbies. 

This recent project for Sheppard Robson client ‘Legal and General (L&G)’ created a prominent architectural addition and a sequence of new public spaces in the area’s Business Improvement District (BID).

The intricate 3000 handwoven thread artwork, a visual focal point in reception area for the Legal and General building, was created by Patricia de Isidoro from six bespoke concrete pieces manufactured by Strata Tiles to specific design drawings. 

Working closely with bespoke joinery specialists; James Johnsons Ltd, the artist; Patricia de Isidoro and concrete partner; Ivanka, Strata Tiles created this delicate, subtle concrete artwork which emerges out of the wall and encapsulates the hand woven golden thread.
