Banana Republic, Kensington

Banana Republic offers versatile, contemporary classics, designed for today with style that endures. Banana Republic believe in “thoughtful design to create clothing and accessories with detailed craftsmanship in luxurious materials.”

The Brief

When Banana Republic opened its doors in Kensington, London the brief was exactly that – versatile and contemporary. With the brief in mind, Strata Tiles sourced and supplied Pirlo (colour 003), a beautiful stone-look porcelain. The Pirlo collection offered Banana Republic a viable and stress resistant alternative to natural stone.

In total ITAB ordered 170sqm of 60x120cm and 200sqm of 120x200cm from the collection to create the modular look on the retail floor.

Forbury Place

Located in the cultural and leisure hub of Reading is Forbury Place. Recently awarded ‘Best Development Outside of London’, No.1 Forbury Place was phase one of the development, totalling 185,000 sqft. Phase two of the project, No.3 Forbury Place, offers an additional 88,909 sqft of space .

Strata Tiles worked closely with the architect to source a natural stone product which could be cut to numerous large format sizes including 100x150cm and 50x150cm. Strata Tiles took the architect and the main contractor to the factory where the natural stone could be specially selected as per the visual specifications and slip resistance requirements desired.

In total over 2000 sqm of Strata Natural Stone (DK 0026) honed tiles were laid throughout the reception and lift lobby areas over both phase one and phase two of the Forbury Place Development.

Davidson Building

In the heart of the Covent Garden Conservation Area stands The Davidson Building. Used by a British-based property investment and development business Derwent London (who also own The White Collar Building, Clerkenwell).

The Davidson Building is an eight-storey new-build, sitting behind a freestanding Edwardian brick façade, designed by architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands (LDS). Since its completion in 2003, The Davidson building has won a number of awards including making the shortlist for RIBA’s 2004 Sustainability Award.

LDS Architects, winners of RIBA ‘Architect of the Year’ 2015, were looking to refresh The Davidson Building whilst keeping an elegant and classic feel. For the reception area, Strata Tiles supplied Grigio Carnico for the bathroom and White Carrara for the reception floor tiles to complement the existing interior. LDS were invited to choose the slabs they would like cut, as well as measure and mark out each area to ensure the veining matched their specific requirements of size and colour.

In addition, Strata Tiles also sourced and managed the process of the beautiful waterjet cut White Carrara sign located in the reception area. The sign was engraved in memory of Ian Davidson who sadly passed away in 2003, the same year the building was originally completed.
