We were very pleased to produce replacement “cold cast” (as opposed to original kiln fired) units for this restoration in lush pink terracotta. With this project along with many others, it is the mould making that needs to be the most fastidious and precise part of the manufacturing process, as these units need to line up exactly to their original neighbours.

One seemingly impossible feat was the restoration and replacement of the bay window roof, resembling an upturned rowing boat and made up of many unique stones. They all had to be individually cast and hand finished in order to produce the various slopes and curves so that they fit together and interlocked.
