Holy Trinity Church, West Sussex
‘230m2 of ‘Sienna’ Limestone plus purpose-made terracotta edging delivered on time and of lovely quality. Kinorigo gave us a great deal of support and some very helpful advice on this beautiful stone. They were very ready to answer any queries we had and were always prompt. Thank you Kinorigo – the stone has been much admired and we have received many favourable comments. Looking forward to working with you again.‘
The House Spa, Dormy House Hotel – Sparcstudio
‘Sparcstudio were the designers for this prestigious Spa for the Dormy House Hotel in Broadway. The pool is sat on bedrock, so it was more cost effective to lift the pool edge above floor level and create an upstand for the water to flow over, which also has the added benefit of giving the pool a distinct character. When looking for a material to clad the ipstand in, Kinorigo’s ‘Oriel’ fitted the bill, as it was the uniform cream we were looking for and was able to be sipplied with rounded off edges to make is comfortable to sit on. We also used ‘Shell’ stone to clad the external hydropool area, which has been equally successful – it has won the Mr. & Mrs. Smith UK Spa of the year 2014, AA Hotel of the Year 2014, Conde Nast Johansens’ ‘Best Destination Hotel’ 2014 and came in at no. 1 in the Sunday Times top 100 list for UK Spas.‘

Gunwharf Quays Shopping Centre – PLC Architects
‘We were recently instructed to design a new Customer Service Kiosk for the popular Gunwharf Quays Shopping Centre as part of their re-branding process. The new building is situated in a central location with high visibility for the thousands of shopper that pass by every day; a Kinorigo product (coupled up with directional lighting) seemed the perfect choice for the feature wall in order to bring a stylish, eye-catching statement of texture and colour into the contemporary glass ‘box’. If you were to ask anyone – from the carpet fitter, to the assistant filling brochures – which part of the project they liked best they would all say ‘the feature wall’. It has been so successful that we will now be installing the same product to all three of the centre’s toilet blocks over the next couple of years.‘
La Grange – Godel Architects
‘We benefitted from Kinorigo’s swift responses to our enquiries – the brilliant samples that were sent over helped assist our client in making well informed decisions.’
La Grange – Contractor Anthony
‘Kinorigo provided a Porcelain tile named ‘Vitara’ for our project which was used for external patios’, pathways and as a surround a sunken swim spa unit. This was a great advantage to us as the clients wanted to keep a natural stone look but one not as ‘heavy’ looking as is usually found in landscaping. The client also needed the product to fit within their price range, Kinorigo helped to achieve this through the quality of their products. Sam Lantsbery was our project consultant and was a fantastic help throughout – from the initial concept and prompt delivery of full size samples right to completion. Kinorigo also helped with the unique and bespoke features required from the same porcelain stone, these were specially made for the project. Throughout the process we were kept informed of the progress of our order. Kinorigo also provided 3D drawings showing our tiling requirements and presenting visually how our bespoke cut tiles would look, these helped put the clients mind at ease. We would have no hesitation in using Kinorigo on any of our future projects safe in the knowledge that they will work as part of the team not just as a separate supplier. With all these pro’s we still managed to stay within the budget as well as achieving an overall satisfaction along with a high end finish. We want to thank Sam and his colleagues for their help and support on this project and hope to work together soon.’
