Buckingham Green, St James’s Park
Buckingham Green project, located close to Parlament and Westminster Abbey, is a scheme that consists of the refurbished Tower alongside two new buildings, comprising offices, retails and 65 apartments. The Tower’s façade opens up into a dramatic double-height, reception area, with an impressive book-matched Borghini Calacatta Marble, hand-chosen by the architects from our marble quarry in Northern Italy.
The core of the fully-glazed, double-height residential reception at The Tower reads as a coherent object, lined in full-height, book-matched Calacatta marble. This carefully selected Italian marble is emblematic of the scheme’s quality and the attention to detail

InOpera Group has also supplied Nero Marquina marble for the restrooms on the ground floor with the seamless aesthetics that dominate the overall design. Marble sink tops were custom made in our factories though assembling the hand-picked marble slabs to match the veins and patterns of the natural stone.
The materials were installed at the highest standard by WB Simpsons & Sons, with whom we’ve partnered on installing Terrazzo tiles and pre-cast staircases for the Royal Academy of Arts.
The site also has a fully glazed lobby, a reduced and rationalised core cased in fine marble and innovative black anodised windows which sit in the steel frame.
The three buildings have been designed with precision and craftsmanship to meet the modern needs of retail, commercial and residential occupiers.
