Context

The International Quarter London (IQL) is a business space in Stratford with four million sq ft of grade A office accommodation for progressive businesses.

To help realise the vision, high-quality stone paving was required  for the shared urban spaces.

Work undertaken

Gustafson Porter + Bowman’s landscape design features an intriguing geometric arrangement of angular stone sections.

Precision-cut rhombus-shaped sandstone sections of cream Laurel Bank sandstone and buff / brown Brownridge sandstone were intersected by bands of grey Thornlake sandstone, black granite and stainless steel strips.

The diamond-shaped sandstone had to be meticulously cut to maintain the crisp linear flow of the space. In contrast to the sharp angles of the laying pattern, the outer edges used to create the planted areas were softer, using rounded contours for a unique finish.
