As well as being home to many other Wintech developments, the Nine Elms area will also include One Embassy Gardens.
The relocating of publishing giants Penguin and DK to the prominent new building is testament to Nine Elms’ remarkable transformation.
Designed by PLP Architecture and with Ballymore as developer, the building will appear as an elevated box formed from double-height stainless-steel panels. The design has some large 3.0m x 7.0m glass units to the main entrance supported with 7.2 4 ploy glass fins. The panel patterns change to create larger openings at the higher levels that open up to the river and respond to the different conditions around the four sides. The building’s frontage faces the striking new US Embassy and the roof terrace provides open views across London.
Wintech were appointed by clients Turner & Townsend to provide full Façade Consultancy services for the One Embassy Gardens project, working closely with the design and installation team.
The scheme is set to be completed in 2019.
