Major redevelopment of a 1960s icon, featuring large-format frameless glazing to retail facades and a new precast-clad residential block
Rick Mather Architects
Centre Point, an icon of 1960s London, is undergoing complete refurbishment and conversion into a residential development with a ground level podium of retail and leisure, while a large public plaza will replace a busy bus thoroughfare.
EOC is working with Rick Mather Architects as facade engineer on retained and new build elements of the podium block, Centre Point House and a new 8-storey block on the southern corner of the site.
The facade types include large-format precast cladding, curtain walling and frameless structural glazing. The facades are designed to meet strict acoustic and thermal criteria and we have carried out detailed thermal comfort assessments to ensure the viability of the retained facades.
