Context

The transformation of Aldgate Square was part of a major regeneration project backed by the Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL).

Identified as an area in need of transformation, Aldgate Square was designed to remove barriers between communities, and is now the first public space for the area’s multicultural residents, and one of the largest public spaces in the Square Mile.

Products supplied

Scoutmoor Yorkstone natural stone paving

Marshalls’ Scoutmoor natural stone paving is used to great effect in the square. The muted grey and brown tones enhance the feeling of openness throughout the area, as well as perfectly complementing the unusual copper tones of the corten steel pavilion roof, designed by Make Architects.

St Botolph’s Church, located in Aldgate Square, also applies Scoutmoor to great effect, taking advantage of the numerous products available. Flags, setts, steps and wall cladding were all used to create a harmonious aesthetic with the surrounding square, while also generating a calming social space in the midst of a chaotic city.

Marshalls Scoutmoor Yorkstone is a popular paving choice throughout London thanks to its versatile colour, impressive technical performance, and class-leading slip resistance. Sourced from Marshalls’ quarry in Lancashire, the stone is the strongest type of Yorkstone available in the UK.

Portuguese Tarvos granite seating

Bespoke Portuguese Tarvos granite seating units were installed to create a centrepiece within the square, allowing a large area for residents and visitors to congregate. Tarvos is an elegant silver grey granite with delicate pigmentation that has been supplied across the country by Marshalls as paving, setts and bespoke masonry.

Outcome

Transformational projects such as Aldgate Square and St Botolph’s Church form a key part of achieving the Mayor’s Transport Strategy which sets out a long-term ambition to create more beautiful, accessible and people-friendly streets across London, where everyone can enjoy spending time and being active.
