Balenciaga has opened a London location! The space is located in Sloane Street and includes a 220-square-meter space for the designer’s new Raw collection.
Our concrete cladding was used throughout the shop including the Walls, beams, Columns, floor tiles, stairs and bathroom basin. We supplied and installed the concrete cladding to the company’s specifications for this project.

You can see wires, ducts and beams through a grated metal floor that’s been stained and cracked from poured concrete. Against the old concrete and jagged flooring are worn leather sofas with corroded metal frameworks showing digital video screens and LED monitors.
Contexture concrete is an innovative, sustainable building material that can be used in a variety of residential and commercial applications. It offers many benefits over more traditional building materials including long-term durability, low maintenance costs, and energy efficiency.
