Upgrade for historic Ironmonger Row Baths

The historic Ironmonger Row Baths near Old Street in Islington, London, has housed a public bathhouse since it was built in 1931, later being upgraded to a Turkish Bath. The spa area was damaged by fire in 2022 leading to the need for an extensive renovation.

Ceramique Internationale says it was “delighted” to be invited to work on and supply a range of tiles for the project by sauna and steam room specialists Sauna360 UK and Greenwich Leisure London, which manages the facility, alongside builder KJ Evans.

The recently reopened spa includes a range of treatment facilities including a salt infused steam room, juniper sauna, infrared relaxation benches, Turkish hot rooms, Hammam benches, an ice room and plunge pool, as well as relaxation and treatment rooms.

The designers wanted to ensure the aesthetic flowed throughout the whole of the spa so two collections of striking marble-effect tiles by leading Italian producer Casalgrande Padana – Marmoker and Onice – were specified for the walls of all the treatment areas, in sizes 2780x1200mm and 1200x600mm.

Five polished colours from the collections were used to differentiate between the various types of treatment rooms and areas. Floors throughout the spa were tiled with Amazzonia Dragon Brown Grip 600x600mm for an anti-slip finish.

David Longbottom, specification sales manager at Ceramique Internationale, said: “This was an amazing project to work on. The building has great heritage and is held in great affection by the local people. We supplied more than 1750sqm of tiles and the level of finish and overall result is absolutely fantastic.”
