This 50-storey tower is under construction at No. 1 Blackfriars Road in Bankside, London. Part of a mixed-use development that will include shops, restaurants and resident leisure facilities and a 161-bed boutique hotel, the tower will have 274 apartments.
Its unique form incorporates a seamless outer glass skin which envelops a subtly coloured interior structure.
These colours gradually fade as the cladding rises, while at the bottom the building will taper to provide a further touch of elegance.
Inhabit has provided full-process façade consultant services including design, specification, tender, shop drawing review and construction supervision.
