Aliva UK designs luxury interior for Hampstead mansion

Aliva UK designs luxury interior for Hampstead mansion

Aliva UK has designed a natural stone effect interior to give a luxury finish on a new north London mansion. The company used 400sqm of its Metropolis polished plaster to transform a basement leisure suite in the Hampstead home. The multi-million pound property’s health-conscious owners specified a swimming pool, gym and luxury shower area for the facility.

Architects Charlton Brown Associates challenged Aliva – the UK leader in interior and exterior finishes – to find a natural, high-end look that would work throughout the suite, and stand up to water and condensation. They chose Metrostone, a thick, cement-based polished plaster for both floors and walls. It gives the look of natural stone, yet is quick to apply and environmentally friendly. To ensure a watertight finish, the product was sealed with Metroresin.

David Bulmer from Charlton Brown Associates said "Once the final finish was agreed, its appearance was similar to textured concrete or natural stone, which suited the brief perfectly.
Following the successful completion of this scheme, we have looked at using Metropolis finishes in a number of other projects and look forward to working together in the near future.”
