Glass steel facade construction
London Regional Properties / Seele Austria
The building was originally designed in the Fifties as an 8-storey-high reinforced concrete structure.
As part of a complete refurbishment three signature folded glass facades with rhombic, overlapping glazing panels were installed.
Although the glass panes overlap they must still provide effective thermal insulation. To achieve this a complex clamp joint detail had to be developed.
