The building varies in height between 7,11 and 18 storeys and the three parts of the building are treated as separate entities, articulated by the external façade. The appearance of the building involves a woven pattern of glazed ceramic tiles. The development also includes a public realm and green space including terraced lawns.

The Challenge

The topography of the site was  challenging, with a level change of around 5m from the North West corner of the site down to the South East.

Our Solution

In order to achieve the required floor to floor of 2.8m for planning and fire engineering purposes, we designed a slender vertical structural zone that dictated the construction of the super structure.
