Following the commission to supply and install a marble staircase for the Fine Watch Room for which they were highly commended in the Natural Stone Awards, stoneCIRCLE was asked to work on the refitting of the Harrods' Beauty Hall project.
The designers, G.A. Group's intention was to create a modern interpretation of a "Great House" or stately home 'from a bygone era where service was personal and every need was catered for; to provide a sanctuary to escape from the stresses and pace of city life, a haven for pleasure and relaxation.'
The work was carried out in 2 phases. In the first which was opened in June 2019, stoneCIRCLE installed Golden Spider, Aramis White, Giallo Siena, Rosa Portugallo and Carrara marble floors. On sections of the floor around the columns, Golden Spider and Giallo Sienna marble have been laid in an acanthus pattern, cut on the waterjet machine, to mimic the acanthus motif on the columns. The walls were clad in Calacatta Lincoln and the columns in Travertine. The company also made pieces of furniture and counters in White Estremoz and Rosa Tea marbles and White Onyx.
A grand staircase linking the hall to the Beauty Services Suite below is resplendent in Golden Spider marble tread risers and curved string course.
The second phase was the White Hall which was completed in autumn 2019. Here stoneCIRCLE installed approx. 900m² of terrazzo flooring in white, beige and grey with brass trim, as well as . They also made counters in Breccia Capraia marble. The walls and 12 columns were clad in Calacatta Lincoln marble.
All materials were sourced in Italy during visits by the client team and Steve Vanhinsbergh. stoneCIRCLE made full use of the Slabsmith photo station, photographing the marble for the walls, columns and counters and then matching the veins to produce the very best results.
