Thornton Tomasetti is providing façade engineering services to the developer from schematic design through construction for the residential buildings Belvedere Gardens (Grid Architects), Four Casson Square (Patel Taylor), One and Thirty Casson Square (Squire and Partners), and The Belvedere (Stanton Williams with Axis) at the Shell Centre redevelopment site on the South Bank in the heart of London.
To maximize the views of the River Thames, all residential buildings comprise elegant and articulated façade systems, which offer excellent thermal and acoustic requirements with minimal sightlines.
High quality and contextual materials include architectural concrete, limestone, triple glazed windows featuring bronze-coloured framing and spandrels to create a dynamic façade that maximizes views whilst complementing the existing Shell Tower and Royal Festival Hall.
The façade elevations feature distinctive base, middle and top elements, with a floor-to-ceiling height of the base of at least five metres. The façade middle section will feature various depths with balconies and open spaces. The top section provides terraces, roof gardens and penthouses.
