WEST TOWER IS A MIXED USE LANDMARK TOWER AT THE CORNER OF BROOK STREET AND KING EDWARD STREET. IT COMPRISES 35 FLOORS CONTAINING 127 HIGH QUALITY APARTMENTS ABOVE 5 FLOORS OF OFFICES. THE UPPER PENTHOUSE FLOORS ARE TIERED BACK TO INCORPORATE EXTERNAL TERRACES BEHIND GLAZED BALUSTRADE SCREENS.
The offices are the new headquarters of our client, The Beetham Organisation. The 5 floors of Beetham’s offices are set back between concrete columns and are full glazed to provide an ‘animated façade’ at street level. A glazed lift and stair serving the office are accommodated between raking fins with views to the river.
The tower was planned to provide a slim, elegant profile around a concrete structure. The apartments are clad in a high quality fully glazed perimeter unitised curtain wall of random clear and opaque panels and are orientated to provide views of both the city and river.
The external public realm works complete the existing integrated hard and soft landscaping to the whole site and incorporate a public artwork. Parking is accommodated within a 15 space car parking stacker within the basement.
Unlike many practices, AHR has over 175 years working across a majority of sectors. This long and rich history offers our clients extensive experience in almost all building types and an insight to address their specific needs.
