Duke of York – Hard Landscaping
As part of the regeneration of the Duke of York’s Square on the Kings Road in London, Stonewest have completed the challenge of laying over 7,000 m2 of paving.
The Duke of York’s Square has been laid as a grid of natural stone, based on the module of the new retail buildings.
Particularly long stone and timber elements ‘float’ across the top of this grid and take the form of seats, low walls and strips of paving as they rise and fall in elevation.
The square is now paved with Moorfield Hard York stone, the stone that has paved London since the days of Dick Whittington.
The works involved:
- The stone was laid to exacting standards to produce both aesthetic walkway and maximum durability as a thoroughfare.
- Stonewest sourced stone from Florence to inlay on the square while the additional historical artwork and lighting schemes required inscribers to produce inlaid diagrams and historical designs into the stone flooring.
