Wave after wave of terracotta and concrete pre-cast modules make up the eye-catching geometric facade of Pure Aldgate at 60 Commercial Road, London.
Designed by architects Buckley Gray Yeoman and built by Wates, the 19 storey student accommodation building was completed in 2015 and has since been recognised for awards, being shortlisted for the Housing Exterior Surface Award 2016. A weaving pattern of the cladding is arranged in a way that lends depth to the façade, with the waves creating a changing play of shadows. The façade of Pure Aldgate also features full height glazing panels and the building holds a BREEAM “Excellent” rating.
