1 New Oxford Street
A refurbishment and extension of Commonwealth House at 1 New Oxford Street, a familiar mid-town London landmark. The nine storey prow clock tower of the 1939 building is an unmistakable feature on the corner of New Oxford Street and High Holborn.
Originally designed by architect and planner Henry Philip Cart De Lafontaine as an ‘ultra-modern building of imposing appearance’ the refurbished building provides 12,250 square feet of retail and 95,000 square feet Grade A office space for client TIAA Henderson Real Estate (TH Real Estate).
ORMS Architects specified 320 square metres of Reed Harris’ Selari conglomerate Stone in two shades for the main entrance hallway and lift lobby landings. A polished finish was selected to enhance the definition of the stone and provide strong reflectivity adding to the overall Art Deco feel. The main floor area was cut to bespoke dimensions from 20mm thick slabs which allowed for a large 1172x572mm rectangular format and corresponding triangles in the same dimension. The floors of the lifts cars were fitted in Selari Stone 12mm tiles which were bonded onto 13mm Honeycomb backing by Reed Harris’ Italian Stone fabricator to provide extra strength and rigidity. The stone was installed by Szerelmey, one of London’s premier stone contractors, to exacting standards.
The overall result is a floor which provides an amazing entrance to a stunningly well designed and detailed refurbishment.
John Guest – Project Director, Szerelmey comments “Reed Harris were the specified supplier for the agglomerate paving tile at One, New Oxford Street. They were a pleasure to deal with from our first, informative meeting in Verona through to the timely delivery of the product. James Reed Harris’ professionalism was a key factor in our successful working relationship, and we look forward to working with them in the future.
Our Cliffstone limestone effect porcelain tiles were specified by TP Bennett Architects for the reception flooring in this private hospital as they provide an extremely durable slip resistant finish which requires minimal maintenance.

This flagship boutique unveils a contemporary design where heritage and innovation coexist with the TAG Heuer’s universes: Sport, Lifestyle, Art & Music and Heritage. The decoration, based on the triangle of the TAG Heuer shield, has been applied throughout the store and inside displays, in shades of pale and dark grey and in smooth and perforated materials. These overlapping layers are a reference to the watch mechanism. The touches of red evoke the brand’s attachment to the world of motor racing.
Reed Harris supplied Basaltina Stone Project Sabbiata Velvet Porcelain 120x60cm as the floor finish within the store. This tile which replicates Natural Honed Basaltina offers excellent durability and the perfect minimalistic aesthetic to sit very comfortably in this high-end environment.

University Arms Hotel
Martin Brudnizki Design Studio were designing the rooms for the refit of the iconic Cambridge University Arms Hotel, the bathrooms were purposefully based upon classic Edwardian styling, taking advantage of the abundance of natural light. Traditional White Octagon and Black Tozzetto flooring was combined with simple but bright 100 x 100mm White glazed wall tiles, laid broken bond and framed with a black grout. Reed Harris supplied nearly 7000 Square metres of tiling for all 192 rooms and suites.
To complement the wall tiles a 150 x 150mm black sculpted satin skirting was used in conjunction with a 20mm wide finishing bead which was created by Reed Harris as a bespoke product for the project.
This small but vital detail completes the bathrooms, and along with many other aspects of the design throughout the hotel have seen the design by MBDS put forward for a number of prestigious design awards.” Comments Katy Li, Senior Designer at Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.

Reed Harris supplied a honed 997x997x12mm Selari Stone Agglomerate Marble for the reception tiling. ORMS, the architects, specified a large format tile which minimised the number of grout joints and greatly enhanced the light airy feel of the double height reception space. The reception walls were finished by the renowned UK artist, David Tremlett who used hand drawn pastels to create a bold striking design.
Finwell House London
Watches of Switzerland
The Watches of Switzerland flagship at 155 Regent Street is a unique three-story, 17,000 square foot store offers the largest selection of watches in Europe including luxury brands such as Rolex, Patek Philippe and Jaeger-LeCoultre. The overall design was created by Callison’s New York and London offices who collaborated closely with Watches of Switzerland to create an environment that would appeal to a wide range of watch buyers from watch enthusiasts to connoisseurs and collectors.
All the marble finishes were supplied by Reed Harris who worked directly with Watches of Switzerland and Callison on a 10 month contract to provide stone to exacting standards of quality and finish. “Having a direct relationship with Callison and Watches of Switzerland presented us with a fantastic opportunity” comments James Reed Sales Director “they had a very clear vision of what they wanted to achieve so that gave us real direction for the stone selection. We did two trips to Carrara in Italy to choose the marble slabs and let The Client and Callison really understand and appreciate the stone prior to fabrication”.
Three stones were selected for the different floors within the store, to ensure a very different aesthetic was achieved in each area. All the stone was fabricated in Italy under Reed Harris’ supervision and then carefully shipped to London for delivery to Regents Street.

St Ermins Hotel
A truly beautiful marble mosaic floor created to RPW’s design which provides a very traditional feel for the reception entrance at this London Hotel. We commissioned an Italian mosaic fabricator to hand cut individual polished marble cubes to form the circular flowing patterns within this stunning floor. All the pieces were glued onto mesh backing for careful shipment to London and with a skilled mosaic contractor carrying out the installation on site the overall result is a real triumph.
