Using challenging high concept designs, Commercial Architect Martin Pease embarked on a personal project of building his family home in Bristol.
Martin commissioned Bespoke cladding that was used in this project and featured in Episode three of series six of the Channel 4 series Grand Designs, whch was fisrt shown in January 2008.
The material featured was Broughton Moor, with a honed texture. The material was sourced from the Lake District.
Broughton Moor stone is a mid green stone, often highlighted by contrasting veins that emphasise its natural origins.
Broughton Moor stone has been used for generations to provide walling, flooring, roof coverings, cills and copings. Architects and designers around the world have long taken advantage of its natural beauty, durability and adaptability to create classic weather resistant details and surface finishes. The richness of Broughton Moor stone makes it ideal for use in interior furniture and fittings, whether in traditional or modern design schemes.
Design guidance, details and sample clauses for the specification of Broughton Moor stone are available in a series of Burlington brochures.
Burlington can supply Broughton Moor stone in a variety of smooth and textured finishes (sample cards showing the finishes are available from Burlington).
