St Olaf House opposite London Bridge underground. Tasteful art deco modernism on the facade with beautiful chamfered brass signage and faceted angles in the window framing, patterns which are unleashed in a wildly unexpected and almost pop art undercroft.

Looking back at some photos of work we completed just before Christmas. This entrance way was a great project to have been involved with; designing and building every aspect in-house. #entranceway #edwardianhome #heritage #design #homeimprovements #luxuryhomes #haddonstone #caststone #portlandstone #handmadebricks #handmade #sussex #brighton #hassocks @haddonstone_ltd

Today I've been doing a bit more intricate carving of the stone, the suitcase's locks and handle to be precise. And Deborah @deborahaguirrejones has been using her diamond cutter to tackle the next sculpture. SWIPE to see 👀. #aforgottenlandscape #stone sculpting #stonesculpture #stonecarving #portlandstone #bunny #elvis #chipchipchip

"#themonument is now seen to raise its lofty head above us, rising from an open area on #fishstreethill. It is almost superfluous to tell the reader that it was erected in #1677, in commemoration of the #greatfireoflondon, which began at the distance of 202 feet eastward from the spot, and its height has on that account been made 202 feet. It is a #fluteddoric column built of #portlandstone, designed by #sirchristopherwren, and executed under his superintendence, at a cost of £15000. The pediment is 40 feet high and 21 feet square, and the column is surmounted by a #blazingurn of #giltbrass 42 feet in height. The north and south sides of the pedestal have each a #latininscription, one descriptive of the destruction of the city, and the other of its restoration. Within is a #spiralstaircase of #blackmarble, having 345 steps by which the visitor may ascend to the summit, enclosed by an #ironrailing, and obtain an extensive view of the mighty city, with its suburbs stretching miles away beyond."-- #bradshaws #illustratedhandbook #londonanditsenvirons #1862
