CLIENT: NAVIGATION PROPERTY MARKETING SUITES
LOCATION: NEW NORTH SQUARE, HAINAULT, ESSEX
In close proximity to Stratford and central London, the Taylor Wimpey development of New North Square consists of around 200 contemporary new homes to which our client Navigation Marketing Suites Services was approached to construct the new marketing suite with a strong focus towards innovative building technology. Our design offered a sophisticated exterior using a combination of ACM cladding and full height glazing which allowed our client to install retail screens to be controlled remotely by the agency, the first of their kind in the UK.
Expanding upon the brief of innovative building technology we decided to use timber frame construction methods throughout for both ease of construction and its sustainability aspects. In conjunction with this we designed a slim angled aluminium gutter profile in order to provide a seamless roof profile within the customer’s eye-line as they approach the marketing suite. Due to the amount of technology contained within the building security was a key concern for our client who required a shutter to the main entrance doors. Traditionally the installation of roller shutters is to the detriment of the building’s aesthetics and therefore we felt it necessary to detail an intricate system that could be concealed within the frame of the building itself thus providing a clean elevation with a high level of security as required. We feel that by imparting our extensive construction knowledge into the design process we were able to successfully fulfil the original brief by producing a visually stunning yet innovative building.
