Arch­way Tower, Lon­don

Design Middle East - - Talking Point -

Van­tage Point Arch­way Tower is a 17-storey, 59m build­ing com­pleted in 1963. The build­ing was re­fur­bished in 2016 and the ex­ist­ing façade over-clad with 3,000sqm of Dek­ton Danae. Re-cladding of the main el­e­ment of the tower re­sulted in the re­moval of the ex­ist­ing con­crete pan­els and its re­place­ment with solid Dek­ton rain­screen cladding and span­drel pan­els. The re­cladding has fa­cil­i­tated the re­use of the build­ing for the res­i­den­tial pur­pose. It has also sig­nif­i­cantly en­hanced the ap­pear­ance of the old tower, giv­ing it a dis­tinc­tive ap­pear­ance and pos­i­tively im­pact­ing the ur­ban land­scape.
