New photos show our 77 Coleman scheme as it approaches completion.The project involves the comprehensive redevelopment of an existing building that fronts onto two major thoroughfares within the City of London.   An existing 1980s building with a dated and heavy façade has been dramatically altered despite limitations imposed by the existing structural frame. On Moorgate, the existing cladding has been replaced with Moleanos limestone, chosen for its similarity to Portland stone which prevails in the City of London. On the Coleman Street façade, Moleanos limestone is used again for the ground, first floor and two-storey extension, but the main body of the building is clad in dark grey handmade Peterson brick that…
