To coincide with the upcoming ZAK World of Façades Conference on October 2, we have developed this tour of terra cotta buildings in London that are Boston Valley projects. Take a stroll and check out some of Boston Valley’s work throughout the city.
Rathbone and Newman Passages connect Rathbone and Newman streets to a new public area at Rathbone Square. Boston Valley worked closely with Szerelmey and Great Portland Estates to develop the bespoke profile and custom glaze finish desired for this project.

30 Broadwick is an 80,000 sq. ft. office and retail development situated in the heart of Soho with elevations on Livonia Street, Poland Street and Broadwick Street. The Poland Street and Broadwick Street elevations feature striking dark grey terra cotta cladding units manufactured by Boston Valley. This cladding is finished with a semi-metallic glaze that extends from the ground floor to the fifth floor. Click here to learn more about 30 Broadwick’s large geometric faience.
Quadrant 4 is part restoration part new build— and with updates made to the interior and exterior, the structure takes on a new identity. Located off Piccadilly Circus in London’s Soho Conservation area, the building has undergone some serious transformation to turn an outdated hotel into a luxury apartment complex. As owners, The Crown Estate commissioned the restoration of the project to architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. Click here to learn more about the revival of this Art Deco facade.
These projects aren’t yet completed – but take the opportunity to check out their progress and follow along; either in person or through our blog updates.
48 Carey Street is a residential new build currently under construction in Holburn, London in the UK. Boston Valley Terra Cotta has manufactured the units of terra cotta masonry for this project, using extrusion and ram press forming methods, allowing for the replication of many of the same pieces during production. Boston Valley worked with PLP to formulate 48 Carey’s speckled glaze, a soft monochrome in a grey hue matching the textural identity of stonework.

60 Curzon Street will be a new residential build development designed by PLP Architecture. Though it is still in the early stages, Boston Valley is working on developing a multi-layered mottled green glaze with a varied sheen. Check back soon for more information.
