How do you replace a cascading glass façade that spans a busy London road? We found a way.
Filling the triangular space formed by two adjacent buildings and spanning an entire road, at 200 Aldersgate you’ll find the piece of architecture where we faced one of our most challenging façade refits.
Prior to our work, the cascading glass structure had presented problems and the architects at Morey Smith wanted to replace it with an elegant and more functional solution. In their designs, they reduced the structure and cross columns, creating a minimal façade where the glass would make a statement in its own right.

Along with glass roofing over the protruding lower section of the facade, we fitted glass curtain screening on the mezzanine within level one. We installed the glass balustrades on the outdoor terrace above the façade and around the other side of the building, we added glass curtain walling going up three storeys, with double-decker buses driving right underneath us.
