Fila gets the Star
FILA has completed a project with Stone and Ceramic at The Star and Garter on Richmond Hill.
The collection of luxury apartments and penthouses, by award-winning developer London Square, occupies a ‘show-stopping’ Grade II listed building overlooking the Thames. Filaproject provided a surface cleaning regime for Stone and Ceramic’s installation of marble flooring and wall surfaces, throughout bathrooms, master en-suites, hallways and living spaces.
Once the site of a fashionable hotel, with guests including Charles Dickens, The Star and Garter building was designed by Sir Edwin Cooper for The Royal Star & Garter Home charity for servicemen injured in World War I.
The landmark building was sold by the charity to London Square in 2013. The restoration and conversion into 86 residences has received multiple awards, including two top accolades in the Evening Standard New Homes Awards.
Stone and Ceramic’s installation included ‘honed and polished’ marble tiles and mosaics – from floors, skirtings and features, to walls, sills and vanity units – throughout the apartments.
Filaproject’s specification included four treatments from its cleaning range: concentrated acid detergent, Fila Deterdek, with its safe, buffered formulation; alkaline deep cleaner, FILAPS87; organic stain remover, FILASR95 and universal Filacleaner.
All treatments are claimed to have provided high performance while safeguarding the natural characteristics of the fine marble surfaces.
