A milestone has been reached at 225 Marsh Wall, a new 55-storey residential tower in the Isle of Dogs, as cladding on the first few floors are installed onsite. Design Delivery Unit are currently delivering the Make designed scheme, which is due to complete in 2024.
Working closely with our client Chalegrove Properties, we developed the façade design and material selection to enhance the fire strategy, improve building performance, while staying true to the original concept design.
"Watching a detail transform from sketch to site is one of the most rewarding parts of the job. In response to a change in fire regulations introduced after planning had been approved, the design for the façade had to change from predominately glass to aluminium. We embraced this as an opportunity to subtly add depth and texture to the façade, by introducing undulating panels which will reflect light in interesting ways, changing throughout the day and the year.”
