The Lancaster is yet another addition to CSC’s portfolio of exceptional quality and superior workmanship. We are proud to have delivered to perfection, 16,000 sq. m of high quality screed for the iconic residential development- ‘The Lancasters’. The stunning prime-value apartment complex overlooking the Kensington gardens, Hyde Park was originally an array of 15 Grade-II listed mid-nineteenth century houses, which has been restored by a team of London’s leading developers, architects and interior designers.
The gleaming white development with the Victorian stucco façade, houses 77 super luxury apartments. The Lancasters demonstrate the perfect blend of traditional architecture and contemporary design and construction. When every individual apartment features the most modern amenities and contemporary finishes, special care has been taken to retain the ornate cornicing, fireplaces and high ceilings reminiscent of the grandeur of the original architecture.
The floor finishes for the development range from walnut timber finishes for the reception areas and master bedrooms to grey stone porcelain tiles for the kitchens/utility areas and marble tiles with contrasting inserts for the entrance halls and carpets for the other bedrooms. CSC provided the supreme quality floor screed suited for the varied array of floor finishes for the heated floors.
The F1 formulation of FlexiDry, which comes with a drying time of 7 days was used for screeding 16,000 sq.m of the luxury development. FlexiDry was specifically chosen for the high quality and quick drying time that the floor screed provides and also because it acts as one of the best complementary sub floors for underfloor heating.
The Lancasters was originally built as ambassadorial residences in early 1850s, and was later converted to a hotel before being refurbished to form the luxury residential development.
