Lignacite worked in collaboration with dRMM to create a new and unique Planished Roman Brick that incorporated recycled glass. Initially in green but ultimately using brown glass. The bottles were sourced at home by Lignacites thirsty workforce. The resulting masonry skin has been used in the walls and floors of the Olympic Village.
Now known as East Village, this is Londons first Olympic legacy village and newest neighbourhood on the doorstep of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It is an entirely new residential area for London and provides 2,818 high quality, well‐designed homes for thousands of individuals, couples and families.
East Village in its new guise continues to win awards, the latest being on the 5th of February 2014 picking up two prestigious awards at The London Planning Awards Best New Place to Live and the Mayors Award for Planning Excellence.
This products highly decorative yet durable manufacture and finish, combined with its good looks and sustainability continues to stand the test of time on this London landmark.
