Project Description

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!

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.

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.
