27-29 Whitfield Street, Fitzrovia, London
This former Central London office building, located in the Charlotte Street conversation area, has recently been refurbished and extended to include a single storey roof extension, also adding flexible use space at ground and lower ground level with office space above. Windows were replaced and the existing render was removed to reveal the brickwork underneath.
Four different samples of KEIM Restauro Lasur were tested, with the final selection of colour 9552 from our KEIM Exclusiv colour swatch. Stagg Architects were in consultation with the local Conservation Officer and the colour was chosen to work in harmony with stone buildings in the area and the Grade II Listed modernist building next door.
KEIM Restauro Lasur is a mineral colourwash system. It can used to create a subtle homogenous decorative effect for brickwork, or colour match and blend in different colour bricks and repairs (also available for natural stone). It can be used to totally transform a brick façade, as seen in this Whitfield Street project example.
