BBC Earth Experience, Earls Court

Forest Pennant tessellated commercial paving

Bespoke paving for entrance to BBC attraction

This new experience, which opened in the Spring, is an immersive nature attraction in London. We supplied our bespoke Forest Pennant tessellated paving for the external hard landscaping element of the project which takes pride of place to the attraction's entrance. This paving was all processed by the team at Forest of Dean Stone Firms; from the block cutters to the masons, who hand finished the paving, ensuring it met the exact specifications.

What is tessellated paving?

In fairly simple geology terms, it is a relatively flat rock surface subdivided into polygons by fractures resembling tiles of a mosaic floor. It's extremely rare in the natural world and found in just a few places on Earth. The mixed colour Forest Pennant paving has been supplied to represent this rare geological phenomenon.
