Innovative washroom manufacturer, Washroom Washroom, has engineered a unique washroom office design in a project in the heart of the City of London.
The superb location of 62 Threadneedle Street ensures the building boasts excellent views across the City, looking out over both the Bank of England and the Royal Exchange. The prestigious office building has been recently refurbished to a high standard throughout to offer more than 22,000 sq ft of quality modern office accommodation over seven floors.
As part of the extensive refurbishment, led by Rolf Judd Architects with Square Metre acting as the main contractor, Washroom installed new male and female WCs on four levels of the building. Designed to a high specification to complement the upgraded facilities, the bespoke features ensured an entirely unique space was created.
Washroom’s full height Alto WC cubicle doors, designed to provide complete privacy for visitors, were finished with a striking wood effect Engineered Veneer. The dark wood tone was highlighted with silver grains to complement the molten silver tiles installed as well as other features within the washroom. The Engineered Veneer finish ensures a consistency of colour for each cubicle door and further adds to the bespoke design and high specification feel of the project, which was worth almost £100,000 to Washroom.
Further adding to the unique design of the washrooms are the bespoke floating trough vanities. The individually shaped sinks, manufactured in white Silestone, boast a finish which is highly resistant to stains and scratches and provides excellent anti-bacterial protection, making them ideal for an office environment. Manufactured from natural Quartz, Silestone is used here to create an attractive high quality finish, to complement the rest of the building.
Washroom’s Concerto integrated duct panels, installed behind the WCs, were spray painted to a specified RAL colour to tie in with the different elements of the design and complete the look. The duct panels not only provide a sleek finish, but also allow for ease of access for future maintenance, whether planned or reactive, providing a practical design solution.
Ian Thomas, contracts manager at Square Metre, said: “Everything went very smoothly throughout the project and as a result, we’re looking forward to working closely with the Washroom Washroom team again on a number of other projects over the coming months. We were delighted with the finished design, all the bespoke elements work together perfectly to create a unique space.”
Trevor Bowers, director at Washroom Washroom, commented: “It was a pleasure to work on such a prestigious building and being able to provide another high quality bespoke design. It’s completely unique – another design which makes full use of our exclusive new Iconica Collection.”
