Burlington stone used

February 2, 2003
LONDON, ENGLAND - Burlington's natural stone was recently chosen for use to clad the walls and floors of The Woolgate Exchange building - the London headquarters for the wholesale and investment bank, Westdeutsche Landesbank.

Broughton Moor natural stone was selected for aesthetics and practicality, according to Burlington. The stone was chosen for the walls and floors of the building's main entrance hall and the base of a central atrium, which provides daylight to the 9-story building. The same stone is also featured in the elevator lobby.

Additionally, limestone was chosen throughout the entrance hall, as a contrast to Burlington's honed green floor tiles. The limestone is also reflective of the use of natural stone on the outside of the building.
