Innovations & added value
This is adaptable building design. It was conceived to provide either offices or residential flats. There is a large area of east facing glazed façade that overlooks a refurbished canal basin, which would allow the building to function as day-lit office space.
The actual demand was for flats so the building has been constructed with insulated panels behind some of the glazing to achieve the required environmental performance. This gives an interesting variety of transparency and opacity and the process can be reversed if there is demand.
