On the site of the old Middlesex Hospital, a massive residential development has arisen.
However, in keeping with conservation, the Radium wing facade on Nassau Street was retained.
The structure comprised of red brick and orange terracotta units, many of which had suffered fractures and damage over the years and were in need of replacement.
Our new “cold cast” (a term used as opposed to original kiln fired) terracotta units were dotted all over the length of the street and have, hopefully, blended in seamlessly the old and the new.
Part of the building was also taken down and then extended upwards, allowing the installation of more cold cast units to carry on the patterns of the existing cornices and parapet copings.
