38 Havelock Terrace is a striking 11 storey building comprising B1(c) use at ground and mezzanine floors with B1(a) office space in the levels above.

The design has been considered in full awareness of a detailed analysis of the site context, both physical and historical. This includes the surrounding building typologies and heights, which typically range from 2-7 storeys with new developments of up to 26 storeys to the north and west of the site.

The scheme’s appearance has been influenced by the industrial character of the area. Notably, the adjacent brick railway viaduct has been referenced in the masonry plinth at ground floor level.

Above the plinth, sits an elegant concrete structure, which includes a primary skin of glazed curtain walling and a secondary skin made up of bespoke fin components. This ‘skin’ has evolved from the idea of expanded metal, which is a ‘mesh’ material often found in an industrial context.

Full case study coming soon.
