The design, materials and massing respond to the nature of the particular streetscape it addresses. To the south it responds to the ‘city’ character of its surroundings with a glass façade and a stainless steel woven brise soleil - the latter acting as sun shading as well as providing visual layering.
On the north and east elevations which face a more residential area, the glass is reduced and limestone and a louvred screen is introduced to restrict direct views and light pollution over the neighbouring properties.

Consultation with local residents, community groups, English Heritage, planning and design officers, culminated in us obtaining approval for the scheme.
