Ben Adams Architects recently used Armourcoat’s Istria polished plaster wall finish as part of the refurbishment of 4 Chiswell Street.
The office building, situated close to the historic Bunhill cricket ground in Islington, has been transformed into a modern and open workspace.
The new façade and front entrance welcomes visitors with a double height reception space bathed in natural light. A sculpturally fluted wall finished in Istria polished plaster and custom terrazzo floor continue a circular motif repeated throughout the design.
Named after the characteristic building stone of Venice, the Istria polished plaster finish is made from a combination of slaked lime, recycled marble powder and special additives.
Available in 72 colours, the Istria finish is full of ingrained surface movement and creates a matt or honed stone appearance. Tonal variation and surface movement within the finish complements other natural materials including wood, stone and fabric.
