project completed: great eastern street hotel, london
Great Eastern Street is a project which will create a 125 bed hotel which will combine the existing Victorian facades with a new modern finish. The Hotel is based on a Victorian Warehouse which gives the building the unique character and is combined with a Grade II listed public house.
This 70,000sqft project is based in Shoreditch London which is the creative hub of Londons trendy East End so it is important to combine the creative culture with the existing historic backround. For this project, the architects opted for our Ceramapanel which is a compressed fibre cement panel which gives the natural effect of a cement finish which reflects the neutral architecture and interior design for the building.
Ceramapanel is a 8mm or 12mm compressed fibre cement panel which achieves A1 and A2 rating. It is a non-combustible panel which comes in a wide range of colours and finishes. The main advantage of this material is that it can be used anywhere due to its fire properties, this can be ground level buildings or high rise tower blocks.
Ceramapanel is a through coloured product which offers excellent sound proofing qualities and has options for anti-graffiti coatings and other natural stone textures

By day and night, Shoreditch is bursting with opportunities to indulge in its variety of dining and entertainment options. Hipsters adore this eclectic pocket of East London flats, and many see it as the birthplace of English theatre and the cultivator of London fashion and street art.
East London as a whole has seen huge growth and success since the London 2012 Olympics, with property prices jumping as much as £1,000 a month and prestigious brands such as Google, Bloomberg, Intel, Amazon and Cisco have decided to set up shop in the area. With the likes of Old Street – or as it is now known, the Silicon Roundabout – emerging as ‘the third-largest technology start-up cluster after San Francisco and New York City’, Shoreditch is becoming the place in the East to both live and do business.
