  • Architect:- Witcomb Project Management 
  • Main Contractor:- Sanderson Contracts 
  • Tiling Contractor:- C & J Metcalf


This stunning, modern build is truly enchanting. It’s carefully selected furnishings and interior design complements the wall and floor finishes supplied by CTD Architectural Tiles.

A fantastic combination of tiles ranging from reclaimed stone effect mosaics to bright green wood-look tiles help build on the strong tradition for design. Tiles used on main area 1200x150mm CTD Rustico 1200x200mm CTD Terra Tiles used throughout this project were selected due to their durability, practicality and aesthetically pleasing look.

A bespoke mosaic circle dominates the centre of The Crown River creating the perfect focal point in this busy airport pub. The bespoke panel below was created using our Lisbon range, with CTD Architectural Tiles working with our supply chain to water jet cut the design to create this stunning feature.

CTD Architectural Tiles Project Manager, John Lannin, commented. "In the years we have been working with this company and their supply chain we have had some amazing projects and this latest one is no different. The combination of bespoke design, fit for purpose products and the operational challenges of a project behind border control in one of the world’s busiest airports makes this one especially memorable."
