Context

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

The development required high-quality stone paving for external spaces that would reflect the vision of this new urban landscape, and help create a boundary-less working experience.

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, utilising rounded contours for a unique finish.
