Quiligotti makes a bold entrance at Northwood Hills

Northwood Hills tube station is on the Metropolitan line. It opened for the first time in 1933 and provides a route to the capital's financial heart or out towards Watford and Uxbridge. In a recent refurbishment of the station led by global infrastructure architects Steer Davies Gleave, Quiligotti terazzo was the first choice for external flooring and was used to create a striking entrance.

Terrazzo at Northwood Hills Station

Cost effective, easy to maintain, and slip resistant, Quiligotti terrazzo was the most suitable and viable option for the project. The design specification was for two compatible modular sizes to be manufactured to order in three striking shades for visual contrast and impact.

For over 70 years, Quiligotti has been leading the UK terrazzo industry. They were able to manufacture to the architects’ unique design and specification criteria and deliver within a short time frame.

Flooring contractor TRI Contracting Services carried out the installation of the new entrance area floor. Working with three different shades of tiles and laying them diagonally to the station’s façade, they created the striking pattern, also overcoming an irregular deviation between the kerb line and the front of the building.  

The station entrance at Northwood Hills adds a touch of vibrancy and colour to an otherwise unadorned façade using a tile proven to stand up to some of the most demanding mass transit applications around the world.
