The Shard London
With two viewing galleries on levels 69 and 72, The View from The Shard is almost twice as high as any other vantage point in London offering breath-taking views of the city.
As part of the recent fit-out project, overseen by Paragon with Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects behind the design, Washroom was tasked with installing new washroom areas on level one specifically for visitors to the attraction.
It was essential for the visitor washrooms to reflect the innovative nature of the attraction as well as creating a striking impression on visitors. With this in mind, Washroom used colour, with its Alto range of cubicles and Concerto integrated duct panel system both manufactured in the same high gloss red, which together with the black, white and grey colour scheme, create a wholly unique space.
Integral to the design was the installation of new, effortlessly stylish, Airblade Taps, designed by renowned British engineering group Dyson. The new product, which combines hot and cold water outlets with a high speed hand dryer all in one unit, also features infrared motion sensors for hygienic use.
For the vanities, Washroom specified bespoke Corian units, which are highly durable. Corian can be cut to any shape and joined with inconspicuous seams to produce a perfectly neat and unified appearance, adding to the sleek, clean look of the washrooms.
