The Londoner is London's first super-boutique hotel. Situated in Leicester Square, it has as many floors underground as it does above, making it one of the deepest basements in London.
The hotel has a central atrium, with a 2nd floor courtyard and a floating terrace and balcony 6 floors above. The terrace is called the Shima Garden, part of the 8 At The Londoner Japanese restaurant, and features a fire place where diners can relax with a drink and enjoy the sky.
Buzon were contracted to install 20mm external porcelain using a combination of Buzon DPH and PB pedestals, and their associated accessories, along with ALUrail.
A combination of 2mm and 3mm spacer tabs were used to ensure even spaces between the different tile formats and maintain the complex pattern used in the courtyard.
If the geometric design of the tiles wasn't challenge enough, the courtyard has sloping skylights around the edge; these were seamlessly incorporated in to the level central floor by the creation of ramps using ALUrail in conjunction with the integrated slope correction (and creation) functionality of DPH pedestals.
The end result is truly stunning!
