Kirkcaldy is a coastal town in Fife, located around 10 miles north of Edinburgh. In the centre of the town stands the former Station Hotel, an elegant Victorian building which has been lovingly converted into premium apartments by developer Limetree Properties. The two, three, and four bedroom apartments at Station Court have been individually designed, combining the Renaissance heritage of the building with the latest building technologies.

So, when the developers came to the specification for the bathrooms, they approached it with the same commitment to marrying traditional styling and modern performance. The search for the right fixtures took some time, but after Bristan met with Limetree Properties’ Daniel Multon earlier this year, the 1901 range was chosen.Station Court Bathroom

Daniel said: ‘Finding the right specification for the bathrooms wasn’t easy. We wanted modern functionality coupled with an aesthetic that would be in keeping with the building’s heritage. When I met with Bristan to see what products they had, the 1901 range just jumped out – it was exactly what we had been looking for. And coincidentally the Station Hotel was built in 1901, so it seemed very fitting!’

Timeless Styling

The 16 bathrooms at Station Court have been fitted with cross head taps for the hand basins and bath, all finished in contemporary chrome. For hand washing, the 1901 three hole basin mixers offer traditional aesthetics but modern features like quarter turn ceramic disc valves for simple use and longevity and a pop up waste function.

The apartmentsStation Court bathroom have also been fitted with 1901 thermostatic surface mounted shower valves, with dual controls for flow and temperature. These valves have a factory set maximum of 42°c to eliminate the ability to select an unsafe temperature, and a working pressure of up to 5 bar.

5-Star Bathroom Experience

Limetree Properties are committed to supporting the local economy, sourcing products and skills from the Fife area where possible. With this
in mind, Bristan put the developer in touch with a local distributor, Premier Contract Supplies, to meet the client’s need for a Fife-based supplier.

Daniel Multon commented: ‘The taps and showers were good value for money, but the main driver for us was the quality, look and function of the fixtures. We want to give our customers a 5-star bathroom experience, and we think the 1901 range will do that.’
