JOHN CROFT DESIGN RENOVATIONS
Towards the end of 2015, our office underwent some exciting renovations. After 16 years at Amelia Street, all was looking a bit tired!
Visitors will now be greeted with a new entrance path which has been re-tiled with a mix of charcoal textured tiles. Our foyer was given a big facelift by replacing the existing balustrade with a frameless glass and chrome balustrade, and we now have new carpet and flooring laid throughout the office.
The kitchen has had new cabinetry installed with a new zip tap, dishwasher and a larger refrigerator.
Over to the bathrooms, they have been completely renovated with stunning marble-look tiles and smart new sanitary-ware. We hope you enjoy the new look John Croft office and we look forward to giving you a tour during your next visit!
