A Berkeley Homes’ development at the foot of London’s Tower Bridge has seen more than 300 sliding doors from leading aluminium systems company Reynaers installed.
The development, at One Tower Bridge, spans 80,000 feet of retail, cultural and leisure space, as well as housing over 400 luxury apartments, whilst overlooking some of London’s finest sights, including the Tower of London, the Cheesegrater, the Gherkin and City Hall on the Thames riverfront.
Five of the nine apartment blocks had Reynaers’ aluminium glazing systems applied, which were selected for their ability to meet the look, feel and quality required by the architects at Squire and Partners.
Most of these apartments features balconies or terraces, which were completed with a total of more than 300 large lift-and-slide doors. Three-chamber windows and doors were also installed throughout the development.
Rebecca Cope, Marketing Manager at Reynaers, said: “One Tower Bridge demanded a superior suite of products that would provide excellent acoustic performance given its bustling location, as well as market-leading security and weather performance given the height of the apartment blocks.
“The build also required a design that looked spectacular, complementing the high-specification décor of the apartments and offering unparalleled views of its enviable location. The systems chosen allow residents to have panoramic views over London, without compromising on insulation or ease of operation.”
Residents can enjoy a vast swimming pool and luxury spa, as well as a state-of-the-art gymnasium, business lounge and virtual golf facility.
With wide pedestrian boulevards that take visitors through retail outlets, restaurants and landscaped communal gardens, the development is at once a self-contained community and a well-connected location in the very heart of London.
Already recognised by Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2015 as Best Interior Design and Large Development of the Year, the development has now been completed alongside planning consultant Barton Willmore, structural engineer Meinhardt and fabricators M Price Limited, Prater Ltd and Scheldebouw.
