Project Description

K1 and K2 are two innovative floating pavillions moored in Canary Wharf’s newest neighbourhood Wood Wharf.

Now home to restaurants and bars, the multi-levelled barges were custom built off-site and floated down the Thames to their forever home to be transformed from bare concrete to timber and light-clad structures.  Designed by renowned architects Glenn Howells Architects (GHA) and detailed with steel and glass, open-end balconies, and outward-facing benches overlooking the water, they  are linked via a series of boardwalks and fitted with fixed seating areas and aquatic planting.

 Using the built-in slope corrector of Buzon’s DPH pedestal range to level the sloping floors of the barges, our sister company, The Outdoor Deck Company were contracted to install Cumaru timber decking on the platforms, gangways and balconies, along with timber benches and day beds supplied by Furnitubes Ltd.

I have known Mike personally and his professional team of installers at Buzon UK for over 12 years.  They make light work of problems and are a solution driven firm who I trust implicitly to deliver the quality my clients expect.  I would recommend Mike and his team at Buzon UK, as I regularly do, in a heartbeat.

Scott Faulks, Managing Director
Arena Stone and Ceramics Ltd

Mike and the team from Buzon UK are highly professional, creative and knowledgeable. After discussing the requirements of our brief, they helped us detail and present a robust paving solution for a high-end public realm landscape installation, using outdoor ceramic tiles with a support system of ALUrail and Buzon pedestals.  Buzon's system is, in my opinion, one of the most impressive on the market.
