Italian Porphyry Setts‚ Chinese Porphyry Paving, Temple Setts and CEDEC
Kenwood Place is a prestigious new residential development by Hampstead Heath near London. The landscaping is superbly designed and very dramatic.
We are delighted to have supplied the natural stone features to this wonderful space. Over 1000m² of Italian porphyry setts fill the winding driveways in their wonderful array of violet‚ brown‚ red and grey colours. This material splits naturally in the quarry beds and the riven surface comes out very flat but still with excellent non-slip qualities. Supplied also with split sides this is an excellent choice for a material with a very small carbon footprint.
The spectacular curved walls are made up of our multi coloured tumbled temple setts from China. This really is a very clever way to use these setts and they blend beautifully with the colours of the Porphyry. To complete the effect we supplied pink / red Chinese Porphyry for the pavement areas and CEDEC aggregates for the pathways.
This is a truly inspirational landscaped area befitting of the high quality‚ premium apartments built within this development.
