Soaring entrance space with help from Armourcoat

Armourcoat surface finishes have played a central role in the comprehensive refurbishment of the iconic Minster Building in the heart of London’s business district.


Minster Buildings, 3 Minster Court reception areas and atrium, London. Armourcoat surface finishes have played a central role in the comprehensive refurbishment.


The interior design, by architects BuckleyGrayYeoman for Ivanhoé Cambridge and its development/asset manager Greycoat Real Estate LLP, has created a major repositioning of the building built around the central eight storey atrium. The impressive entrance boulevard has a polished floor of terrazzo with bronze inlays, edged by dark oak.



Throughout the entrance and reception spaces, the walls are hand-finished in nearly 2,000m2 of Armourcoat polished plaster together with over 600m2 of the company’s Acoustic Plaster System applied to the ceilings. Designed to optimise the acoustics of interior spaces, the Acoustic Plaster System offers a clean and smooth mineral surface that can be applied seamlessly over large expanses to both flat and curved surfaces.



Comprising of a special mineral wool composite panel that is bonded onto the substrate and finished with a seamless layer, the Armourcoat Acoustic Plaster System offers an elegant marble based plaster finish while allowing sound energy to pass through the surface. The zero VOC system, which consists of 80 per cent recycled material, achieves class ‘0’ fire rating and class ‘A’ Noise Reduction Coefficient rating.
