Merano wins RIBA Regional Award 2019
Merano Residences have recently been announced as London RIBA Regional Award 2019 winners.
The high-quality mixed-use development was led by award-winning architects Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners and avant-garde developers St James of Berkeley Group and is made up of three stepped bays varying in height to create a dynamic skyline. The 14, 21 and 28 storey blocks will accommodate apartments, offices and a cafe.
RHSP’s signature steel-cross bracing stabilises the simple concrete frame and the east and west facades made of glass which create a light transparent envelope. Vibrant, popping colours are being employed to the undersides of the balconies, instantly brightening the surrounding area on Albert Embankment as well the building’s exterior.
Wintech were appointed by St James to perform a full facade consultancy and design services on the development through a series of stages; from the development of a cladding and glazing strategy for a whole building, to specification, fully detailed design and on-site validation of works.
