Oak veneer creates classic look for Clarges

Leading commercial washroom manufacturer, Washroom Washroom, has created new washrooms which blend classic and contemporary style for a sophisticated office development in the heart of Mayfair.

The striking new retail and office development at 7 Clarges Street has been led by led by world-renowned architect Squire and Partners and coordinated by Laing O’Rourke for British Land. The development comprises bespoke office accommodation inspired by the established Mayfair streetscape as well as British tailoring and craftsmanship.  The façade uses Portland Stone with hand carved fluted stone columns and bronze framed windows and balconies, whilst fully glazed openings at street level offer views into the reception area, designed as a gallery space in which bespoke commissioned furniture and artworks are displayed.

The high quality finish was incorporated throughout the building and Washroom Washroom, worked closely with interior fit out contractor SJ Eastern to ensure the new washrooms met the high specification bespoke finish required. The washrooms are a continuation of the interior design theme and feature stunning oak veneer to complement the rest of the building as well as the high specification luxury staff shower facilities in the basement.

Washroom’s full height Alto toilet cubicles and pilasters were both finished in real wood dark oak veneer, chosen to complement the wood used in the reception area and other common areas. The rebated edges of the Alto cubicles create an attractive flush front façade and together with the full height, real wood veneer finish and matching pilasters adds to the high specification design.

Washroom’s Concerto integrated duct paneling system was faced with toughened back painted glass to create a seamless finish. As well as being easy-to-clean, the duct panel system also allows ease of access for any future maintenance whether planned or reactive and creates a neat and tidy appearance in the washrooms by concealing pipework.

Completing the washroom design are the bespoke white Corian vanities complete with sensor-operated taps, integrated waste bins and bespoke Corian recessed duct bag shelf above the sinks in a contrasting colour. Solid surface Corian, which as well as being extremely durable lends itself to being cut, bent and joined to produce a seamless smooth finish offers the perfect balance form and function making it ideal for busy commercial washrooms.

For the staff shower and changing area, Washroom installed its high specification Octave lockers which were finished in the same dark oak real wood veneer as the toilet cubicles to continue the design. Each spacious shower room is completely self-contained with a bench and free-standing glass shower cubicle housed behind a standard door creating a changing area more akin to a luxury leisure facility.

Washroom also supplied and installed all sanitaryware, including pans, urinals, sinks and taps, as well as all ancillary items, including toilet roll holders and even the shoe-shining machines for the project.

Trevor Bowers, director at Washroom Washroom said:

“We were delighted to have played our part in such an iconic office development. When it comes to bespoke washroom designs such as this, our Iconica Collection with its extensive range of more unusual materials and finishes provides plenty of options to create a truly unique design as well as at the same time ensuring the washroom designs reflect the rest of the building.”
