DETAILED PROJECT DESCRIPTION –
Brief for this project was to maximise the development potential of a narrow, inner-city plot. The site is in an historic and sensitive location. NUA worked closely with local design officers and the Greater London Authority to develop a scheme with character that was both commercially viable and acceptable to the planning authorities.
This lengthy consultation process resulted in a scheme for an 18-storey tower comprising office and retail accommodation 90 sales/affordable residential units with access to a shared roof garden above.
The building is in three sections with a visually lightweight steel and glass frame resting on a solid 2-storey stone-clad plinth and a metal-clad tail to the rear. The steel and glass structure is flanked by wafer-like elements comprising a mixture of balconies and timber screens.
Key Elements: Residential, Commercial, Conservation Area, Landmark.
