CB Stone was involved in the development of this great project, providing Portuguese limestone for the exterior cladding of the building. For the 127 hight street Kensington façade building, CB Stone contributed by manufacturing the natural stone – Cabeca Veada, honed finish. A beautiful light beige limestone with uniform background and fine to medium brown grain and medium hardness. This type of stone is very popular in the United Kingdom due to its similarities to Portland and resistance to weather conditions.
