A contemporary office development in London’s West End has specified a range of stylish commercial washroom products from Maxwood.
The new building at 55 St James’ Street is home to over 23,000 square feet of exclusive office accommodation.
In keeping with the building’s prestigious specification, the interior fit-out includes luxury male, female and DDA compliant washrooms, custom-made and installed by Maxwood across seven storeys.
The washrooms feature a elegant range of Maxwood products, from real wood veneer cubicles and decorative glass duct panelling to high performance hardware with an attractive copper-coloured finish.
The washrooms’ contemporary design is based on Maxwood’s Maranté cubicle range.
By utilising a unique design of pilaster, the system achieves an elegant flush surface appearance, rebated to run in-line with the doors and the use of fall-to-close hinges.
The panelled look of Maranté cubicles is combined with full height styling for complete privacy.
A Dark Oak veneer from the ALPIkord range was used for the bespoke cubicle doors, divisions and pilasters for the new offices. This combines the aesthetics of real wood with the durability of a pre-finished product.
The stainless steel hardware, such as cubicle handles and hinges, are coated in PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) to simulate a copper effect and provide a distinct contrast from the dark woods, in addition to providing a scratch and corrosion resistant finish.
This detail is continued at the base of the doors and pendant light fittings with the addition of a ‘copper’ trim.
The washroom package for 55 St James’ Street also featured trough-style vanity tops, custom designed by Maxwood in Corian Designer White.
The Vanity Mirror Units feature a stainless steel band fitted to the lower horizontal edge, fixed with ‘lift off’ clips.
Bespoke cupboard units complete the vanity area, with access towel hatch to front elevation, hinged ALPIkord veneer doors and removable powder coated stainless steel bins.
Thanks to Maxwood’s Maxwell Duct Panelling system, the running of pipework and mounting of sanitaryware in the new washrooms was made a simpler and more secure task.
The made-to-measure, glass finish ducting units, back-painted in a subtle Mouse-Grey were manufactured offsite by Maxwood and delivered to site ready to install to toilet cubicles and male urinals.
