Lapicida is legendary within the industry for securing historically important stone. In a new acquisition, Lapicida is now in a unique position to offer prestigious Portland stone from the floor of Horseferry Road – the City of Westminster Magistrates Court.
This iconic building has made way for luxury apartments and Lapicida is saving and liberating 300m2 of rare and exclusive luxury reclaimed flooring. Lapicidas’ expertise has carefully reclaimed and sympathetically prepared a strictly limited expanse of flooring that is now available for residential or commercial use.
A unique opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the pop stars, politicians and sporting heroes, who all appeared at the courts after falling foul of the law, during the 40-year history.
From tragic singer Amy Winehouse and wild Libertines frontman Pete Doherty to former England Football captain John Terry and ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp, all had their day of reckoning in the infamous building.
Winehouse was cleared at Horseferry Road in 2009 of assaulting a dancer, while Doherty was jailed for six months in 2003 for burgling a bandmate's home.
Terry had appeared the previous year, charged with causing actual bodily harm and affray for assault on a nightclub doorman, although he was later cleared, and Redknapp visited the courts in 2010 on tax-evasion charges.
But it is also some of the stranger cases that were heard at the Horseferry Road courthouse that make this such a unique opportunity to own a piece of British legal history.
Imagine sitting down to breakfast on the spot where former Labour minister John Stonehouse stood in 1975 after faking his own death by leaving a pile of clothes on Miami beach?
Or what about telling your dinner party guests that the surface beneath them was the very floor that the ringleaders of the David Beckham kidnap plot had walked upon when they faced justice?
