Ten Trinity Square
Location: London, UK
Architect: Aukett Swanke.
10 Trinity Square, directly across the road from the tower of London, former headquarters of the Port of London Authority, once the nerve centre of the British Empire and one of the cities most cherished and important buildings, has been restored and transformed into a world-class scheme with hotel, spa, restaurant, club and 41 luxury residences.
The IG Units manufactured for 10 Trinity Square consisted of a mixture of Vision units, spandrel units and rain screen cladding glass. The vision glass consisted of 8mm Heat Strengthened outer 20mm Spacer and 14.28mm Heat Strengthened Acoustic Low e Laminate with a digitally printed ceramic fade out border around the perimeter of each IG unit, this combination gave our client excellent thermal efficiency and acoustic performance along with a very aesthetically pleasing finish.
The design includes a modern interpretation of the original 1920’s rotunda designed by Sir Edwin Cooper as the integral part of the vision for the redevelopment. The internal courtyard space at 10 Trinity Square has been carefully designed to represent an ever-changing and evolving landscape, which plays upon the natural elements of night and day, and utilises the rotunda’s reflective surfaces of glass and water. Its twisted fins are also designed to create an optical illusion, giving shape to its geometric form whilst providing privacy for those hotel rooms overlooking the courtyard and lending a feeling of light and space.
