60 Curzon is a high-end residential development currently under construction in Mayfair, London. Designed by PLP Architecture for developer Brockton Everlast, the building comprises 32 luxury apartments arranged around a central courtyard garden. This new build is located on the site of a 1930’s building that once housed the district’s well-known Mirabelle restaurant.
To incorporate the neighborhood’s history of local craftsmanship, the majority of 60 Curzon’s façade is made of carefully hand-set Portland Stone with bespoke bronze accents. These features were designed to compliment the surrounding Georgian townhouses without overpowering the streetscape, with the building’s massing sculpted for a smooth transition of scale.
The stone façade steps back at key intervals to reveal dark green terra cotta panels, most prominent as vertical detailing around the front entryway and apartment balconies. Studio Christine Jetten was retained by architect PLP to deliver a glaze design for 60 Curzon. Boston Valley’s glaze lab was then able to match and manufacture this design with our production processes, resulting in a multi-layered, mottled green glaze with a varied sheen. The glazed terra cotta has a depth of texture and luxurious look that coordinates well with the building’s refined styling.
