BURLINGTON Limestone Helps Transform Thames-Side Apartment

A stunning bathroom refurbishment in a residential Thames-side apartment that overlooks the Houses of Parliament is the perfect endorsement of the beauty, flexibility, colour variation and functionality of Burlington’s sumptuous limestone.

The brainchild of London-based Residence Interior Design, this exclusive high-end bathroom project involved meticulous design and planning as every room in the apartment is on a radius. Cleverly overcoming the challenges of maximising natural light and space, bespoke Burlington stonework has been used to create a natural and luxurious environment, an oasis of tranquillity.

To create maximum design effect and provide a seamless transition between walls and floors, the bathroom boasts a mix of Burlington’s Baycliff Lord and Caulfeild limestone supplied with flamed and honed textured finishes. The flame-textured beauty of the stone is further accentuated on the walls by concealed low-energy light sources.

The use of random length bands in custom heights of 282mm supplied by Burlington, cleverly draws attention away from the confines of the room, whilst meticulous design calculations also facilitated the introduction of niche storage and display areas without the need for further cuts in the stone. Chrome bathroom fittings and a low-iron shower screen complete with recessed channels complete this bespoke design.

On specifying Burlington’s limestone, Director of Residence Interior Design, Stephen Dick explains: “Such was the variation in the two finishes of Burlington’s limestone that the same material could be used throughout and no other materials were needed to create such a natural yet lavish effect. By sourcing from the UK, there were no lengthy lead times and the environmental impact of transit was minimised.”

By opening up the previously compartmentalised space, stunning views of the Houses of Parliament may now be enjoyed from the shower.
