The conversion of an existing nine storey office block to residential.
For this project we worked work in collaboration with Lloyd-Thomas Architects (01926 633 600)
McCormick and Smith were responsible for the design of the penthouse apartments, using a lightweight structure with a wide over-sailing, barrel- vaulted roof . This gives shelter for the private terraces, a deep shadow line and provides an elegant curved ceiling in the rooms below.
The colouring of the external panels and the irregular disposition of the windows of the main block creates an elevation which softens as it extends towards the sky-line, defined by the penthouse.
