You can view the relevant pages of the exhibition boards in the 'additional materials' section below, and have your say using the comment form at the bottom of the page.

    Design Principles & Materiality

    Podiums wrap the bottom of towers to provide additional public amenities and a human scale at the base of S1 & S11. These are designed to look different from the rest of the residential towers.

    The residential part of the towers have two types of bronze-effect façades:

  • Type A: Fully glazed view walls are framed in bronze-finish metal.
  • Type B: The metal is folded to create articulation and reflect light.
  • The podium or base of the towers will:

  • Form the public spaces (Crèche, Wellness Centre, and amenity terraces).
  • Be clad with horizontal louvred screens, angled depending on indoor uses.
  • Have large frame-elements express key entrances for the Crèche Wellness Centre
  • The design of the S1 podium is developing and not yet finalised. The detailed plans will be reviewed with the Local Planning Authority.
