Lucas has completed the main painting package at 1 Crown Place, a complex new build and restoration project on the northern edge of the City of London.

This is a mixed use development with two residential towers of 29 and 33 storeys, a new six storey podium building, and the refurbishment of older buildings including a wonderful terrace of Georgian houses.

We applied special durable resin coatings to basement and back of house areas then moved on to delivering a full decorations programme for the 246 residential apartments in the two tall buildings. The new build provides office and retail spaces whilst a 30 room boutique hotel and members club has been built within the Georgian terrace.

Lucas had an early involvement in this project building a spectacular and highly original marketing suite in an existing office building on Wilson Street, which sits within the development. It is located in the middle of an open-style, rough warehouse space. Working closely with architects Kohn Pedersen Fox and interior designers Bowler James Brindley, we created a very cool full-size one bedroom apartment with no exterior walls or ceilings, sitting in the middle of the warehouse.
