Watch 22 Ropemaker take shape

The building of 22 Ropemaker is progressing rapidly, and the vision of what we are creating here is becoming clearer with each day. We commissioned photographer Lee Mawdsley to capture the story of the building as it develops.

INSTALLING THE FACADE

Summer 2022

Crème Royal limestone, quarried in Portugal, will define the colour of 22 Ropemaker’s rhythmic facade. In a bright beige colour, it will blend with Islington’s traditional stonework.

In recessed areas, darker tones of anthracite ceramic will offset the pale limestone and add contrast, while Swedish black granite around the base will provide a visually robust note.

FROM STEELWORKS TO SITE

British-made steel from William Hare's specialist steel fabrication facility in Scarborough, will add to history to 22 Ropemaker's timelessness.
