The scheme benefits from superior leisure facilities including a gymnasium, pool and sauna on the lower-ground floor of Abell House, and a business suite on the ground floor of Cleland House.
Inspired by the site history and the classical composition and proportions of the surrounding buildings, the façades feature an outer lattice of precast concrete (emulating Portland stone) encased in an outer framework with an inner glazed ceramic skin that creates the appearance of an ensemble.
Abell House’s triple-height lobby is aligned with Art Walk to the east and the archway of Westminster Garden to the west, creating a wonderful connection between the building and its surroundings and making a strong visual connection with the Tate Britain.
Our use of BIM technology to manage the design process of both consultants and sub-contractor information has been essential in the delivery of the buildings highly complex façades and numerous internal configurations.
