Corium Brick Cladding System Provides A Lightweight Solution (1)

Project Team

The team included Reid Architecture.

Project Overview

Phoenix House is an all-suite hotel off Sloane Street in London. Although an entirely new development, it is located in a conservation area, so the design involved rebuilding a faithful replica of both the front façade and roof of the existing late 19th century building.  Reid Architecture specified Corium Buff Multi, from Baggeridge’s product range of innovative clay brick cladding systems.


In order to meet the local authority’s planning requirements, which stipulated that other parts of the building be sympathetic to surrounding buildings, Corium was utilised to create lightweight chimneys, preventing the need for costly structure to support them.

Review and Comment

Corium is ideal for new-build and refurbishment projects including those for RSL’s and Housing Associations, MoD developments, housing schemes with limited access in densely populated areas such as London and particularly therefore high level storey extensions, also schools, retail stores and office developments.
