100 Bishopsgate

White Water Quarry in the ‘City‘ in London

Fascinating: 30 metres long, 8 metres high - part of the Laas (Lasa) White Water marble quarry in London in the lobby of the new 100 Bishopsgate Tower

When visitors enter the large reception and lobby area of the 40-storey main building of the "100 Bishopsgate" building construction project, newly constructed between 2016 and 2019 on the eastern edge of the financial district of the City of London, they encounter the entrance lobby with 8m high and 30m long walls of refined Lasa marble. The installed wall cladding with Lasa marble of the protected variety group, LASA VENATO® is the result of an interesting and unusual process. The architects and designers of Allies and Morrison were fascinated by a local glimpse of the Lasa White Water Quarry (Weißwasserbruch/Cava Acqua Bianca) and asked Euromarble to design the reception area as if it had been cut out of a single block of Lasa marble. Visitors thus enter the building and find themselves in front of a huge, true-to-original marble wall of the White Water Quarry, which was built and cut by Euromarble and installed by Szerelmey.
