An impressive feature wall for Starbucks Coffee Shop in the heart of Gatwick Airport

A fine example of our airport works is the Starbucks coffee shop in Gatwick Airport, undertaken jointly with our sourcing partner, the Ethical Stone Company.

Working closely with the Starbucks in-house design team, we developed an indigenous style fish scale graphic that was applied to the surface of large format Etna Lavastone panels by a screen-printed glazing technique. The motif was fired to 1200 degrees centigrade to create a permanent fixed glaze – a method that can even be applied to exterior locations, e.g. cladding to a building.

Following an extensive £1.5 million refit, and in keeping with the flagship nature of the location, visitors to the Starbucks coffee shop in Gatwick’s south terminal are now greeted by this impressive feature wall.
