This scheme comprised of 18 private sale units all completed to a high specification along with external remodelling to both the facade and roof of the building, including the existing basement level car park. The existing building covered a footprint of approximately 1,316m2.

This building was previously utilised as an office building so our first task was to undertake an extensive soft strip demolition programme consisting of the removal of all previous plant and equipment. This allowed design team access to assess the existing structural characteristics and compliance to the new design layouts.

The challenges faced on this project included working around and above live trading commercial outlets with consideration to noise vibration and access scaffolds all needing a great deal of coordination and planning with tenants.

The remodelling and design of this scheme was made challenging due to the existing structure. The building was a masonry construction that dictated the design restraints of the flat layouts and required some carefully sequenced build works to allow the new layouts to be fully formed.

The specification focused on a high-end city living approach with Porcelanosa sanitary ware and tiles, high end kitchens and Camaro Loc floor finishes. This project also saw the added value of two penthouse apartments with improved specification and floor space to the top floor including a roof terrace.
