Case Study

The Leadenhall Building, London

Ideal Standard, the leading provider of innovative and design-driven bathroom solutions has worked closely alongside renowned international architectural practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. Together they designed and manufactured washroom products for the Leadenhall Building, a London skyscraper known for its distinctive leaning shape and ‘cheesegrater’ design.

The Challenge
The challenge for Ideal Standard was to create a washbasin that truly reflected the building’s distinctive profile, as well as providing a unique balance between the occupants’ comfort and the efficient use of water resources. The Leadenhall Building features 610,000 sq. ft. of lettable floor space over a total of 46 floors, at a total height of 736ft (224m). The building is located directly opposite the Lloyd’s building within the city and was officially opened by HRH the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

The Brief
Ideal Standard work closely with the Leadenhall’s architects to ensure that the especially made Leadenhall washroom basin met these criteria while providing the polished finish required in an iconic space.

The Solution
Just like the distinctive building in it which is housed, the washbasin features a streamlined, sloping aesthetic, reflecting the overall feel of the entire project. For ease of maintenance, the product was created so that it’s easy to clean. Although the product was first used in one of the capital’s largest commercial buildings, it is also suitable for domestic projects.
