Lazenby’s Mayfair Grey polished concrete floor with brass trim has been specified by Bennetts Associates for the interior of a new office building in London. The installation over 150m2 of the ground floor of One Bedford Avenue in the centre of the city complements the building’s patinated brass walls, sumptuous leather-effect seating and elegant concrete wall features. The integration of classic materials and creative design pays homage to the electronics retail industry that once defined the area. 

Lazenby’s master craftsmen installed the floor 100mm deep over an existing concrete sub-base. Bennetts Associates specified a 5mm brass trim detail rather than Lazenby’s standard saw cut joints to create a feature in the floor to match the panel effect used throughout. The joint plan therefore became part of the meticulous grid. The installation of the floor took almost two weeks to complete due to the complexities of setting up the brass inlays. Lazenby applied an anti-slip coating to ensure that the floor not only looks great, but is safe to use if it gets wet.

Mayfair Grey is one of Lazenby’s most popular concrete colours and it has a pre-cast concrete colour equivalent; Midnight. Mayfair Grey’s inherent blue/grey colouring, with the classic organic characteristics of polished concrete is a tasteful choice for this sumptuous interior.
