Nova, Victoria, Building 5 in London. Sergio De Gaetano / Thornton Tomasetti.
Thornton Tomasetti provided façade engineering services to the owner from schematic design through construction for this 13-storey residential building, which is part of a seven-building
master plan for the Victoria area in central London, formerly known as Victoria Circle.
The Nova Building 5 contains 170 private residences, with retail units at ground level and represents luxurious city centre living in a beautifully engineered statement building,
overlooking the gardens of neighbouring Buckingham Palace.
The façades feature Portland limestone cladding with a six millimetre open joint and random course, architectural precast concrete elements, GRFC cladding and glazing to the highest quality and performance. The materials have been orchestrated to articulate and make legible the various component parts of its architectural composition and their contextual relationship.
