  • 19 Apr 2018

Armourcoat polished plaster and acoustic plaster systems have recently played a large part in the refurbishment of the Minster Building in the heart of London’s business district.

The interior design, by architects BuckleyGrayYeoman for Ivanhoé Cambridge and its development/asset manager Greycoat Real Estate LLP, created a major repositioning of the building built around the central eight-storey atrium.

The ground floor reception is approached by a 30m long boulevard from the new entrance on the corner of Mincing Lane and Great Tower Street. The original entrance has also been retained to Minster Court piazza.

Measuring seven metres high and up to eight metres wide, the impressive entrance boulevard has a polished floor of terrazzo with bronze inlays, edged by dark oak.
