ArtHouse has recently been built as part of the Kings Cross Central Regeneration project.
The building comprises 143 residential apartments with one, two, three and four bedrooms.
Terracotta tiles have been used on the buildings façade and its four residential clusters, which are connected by towers, have been finished in stainless steel.
The designs combination of private roof terraces and towers has created alternating and stacked balconies: for this reason, thermal bridging had to be considered early on in the design process.
Thermal bridging can prevent the growth of mould, as well as reducing heat and energy loss.
Schöcks Isokorb type K, which has been developed for concrete-to-concrete connectivity, has been included within ArtHouses design to provide a thermal break between the concrete structure and the varied connection profile.
The structural thermal break unit can also transfer bending moment, stress and shear forces.
By using Isokorb type K, buildings can pass the requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations, which states that the condensation risk must be equal to or greater than 0.75.
Schöcks Isokorb type K thermal break unit has also been certified by the BBA and achieved LABC Registration.
