In order to keep the historic Burlington Arcade in the forefront of West End shopping, its owners, Meyer Bergman and Thor Equities, wished to raise its cultural profile, capitalising on its history, destination status and location. As part of this vision, they commissioned JFA to design a new floor design consistent with the high quality of the existing fabric.
We created a historically referenced, yet truly contemporary stone floor. The geometry, tonal variation and craftsmanship responds sympathetically to the architecture of the building whilst enhancing the character of the Arcade. The palette of stone has been sourced entirely from British quarries, echoing the Arcade’s regency and historical associations.
