The redevelopment of the original 1960s office building of Eastbury House will deliver 40 private apartments over 27 storeys on a very constrained site between the railway viaduct and the Embankment.
The primary steel and concrete elements of the building are expressed with the three vertical elements of the scheme identified by different coloured steel balconies. Merano is due for completion 2017.
One third of the building’s footprint is allocated to public space in the form of a 4-storey high external plaza. The plaza has been designed to complement the height of the adjacent Rose Pub and features three levels of workplace above ground and a ground floor café with mezzanine floor.
