A range of Roca’s products, including basins, baths, water saving taps and showers, have been used to furnish bathrooms at the Sesame Apartments, an exciting new Thornsett development in the heart of Battersea.
Designed by the Tollgard Design Group, the 80 Sesame Apartments boast views over the river Thames and combine innovative design with luxurious fittings. The project also meets the Code for Sustainable Homes by incorporating a green roof, low energy rated appliances, high levels of insulation and water saving.
Each bathroom features Roca sanitaryware and accessories; including wall-hung Cala basins, with under-basin units, Gap baths, Next shower heads and accompanying shower trays, enclosures and/or bath screens plus taps, flush plates and accessories. The stylish yet simple look fits with the overall minimalist scheme of neutral contemporary floor to ceiling porcelain tiles and chrome fittings throughout.
Water saving is a key element to meeting the Code for Sustainable Homes, which is why Roca’s Thesis taps were chosen. Thesis taps feature an ‘Eco Disc’ cartridge that provides resistance at 50% of the water flow, encouraging end users to think before they turn the tap onto full. The cartridge also has a temperature limiter, set when installing the tap, to eliminate the risk of scalding.
“Roca’s products fitted in with the overall aesthetic of the apartments,” said Ron Sparkes, from Thornsett. “The quality and variety available is perfect for a scheme like this – we had a lot of apartments to furnish and the end customer will be expecting nothing but the best.”
A large project, demanding nothing but the best in terms of style and functionality, Sesame Apartments demonstrates how Roca’s design approach and quality meets the exacting standards of modern (and sustainable) developments.
