The latest news from the Stone Industry
15 Clerkenwell Close is a seven-storey building in Islington with a structural stone frame. It contains eight apartments (including the home of the building's architect, Amin Taha) and several office spaces. Amin chose French limestone for the project to honour the original structure on the site, which was the 11th century Norman nunnery of St Mary’s. The stone frame reduced the building's carbon footprint by 90% compared with steel or concrete and cost 25% less.
