Hi-Macs Hoovers up
IDM Properties has renovated and restored the landmark Art Deco Hoover building in London, creating 66 luxury apartments with Hi-Macs solid surfaces.
The Hoover Building on Western Avenue was listed Grade II in 1980 and its renovation has included retaining many of the original Art Deco features, including grand staircases with wrought-iron bannisters, mouldings and cornices, terrazzo flooring in the lobby and the original green colour scheme in the hallways, not to mention the sumptuous façade of this emblematic building.
The apartments created combine contemporary style with modern features in open-plan living areas.
They are in Hi-Macs Andromeda, which fits nicely with the custom-made cupboards and the built-in appliances (which are all Hoover brand).
Hi-Macs was chosen because it can be joined seamlessly, making it appear to be fashioned from a single piece of material and because it is resistant to staining and discolouration while being hygienic for food handling.
