Bourne Estate, Camden

The Bourne Estate, Camden, lies within the Hatton Garden Conservation area. Accordingly, the recently completed £19 million expansion and improvement project, including two new blocks of mixed tenure homes, had to be built sympathetically to surrounding buildings.

A major concern facing the project’s architects was how to replicate the heritage look of the original, glazed bricks, within budget and in compliance with British Standards. Having consulted on the project and identified bespoke porcelain tiles as a suitable solution. We then worked with the Architect and Contractor on the tiles’ specification, sampling, manufacture and installation.
