Project Description

The Gasholders’ architecture is anything but ordinary – 149 distinctive canalside apartments and penthouses, built within a refurbished triplet of Grade II listed, cast iron gas-holder guide frames at the heart of King’s Cross, London.

Our work on the project with Maylim included the 149 private balconies, with 14 permutations, all with views across the capital.

Variable in size from 7 – 15m², each balcony is curved with odd shaped sides, requiring a solution to accommodate and support the 20mm external porcelain paving.

The Buzon DPH pedestal system solved this, not only accommodating the variable heights and slopes, but also the odd shaped pavers and curves.

Within the radial area of the project, BC pedestals were installed under pavers utilising the circular tabs to achieve the curve, creating a stunning feature in the atrium.

This unique project was challenging but also highly rewarding for the team who were delighted to be involved in the creation of such an iconic building.

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.
