This confident glass structure in the City of London is a masterpiece in architectural glass and OAG installed some of its key features.
With its awesome cantilevered exo-structure supporting eight floors of virtually column-free, open plan office space inside, Cannon Place is one of the most innovative architectural structures within the Square Mile.
It’s a building that’s all about glass and all about light. Rather symbolically, one of OAG’s key contributions to it was a spectacular light wall that illuminates the entrance to Cannon Place Station. And that wall isn’t just for show. It communicates the building’s modern, high status, high spec qualities in a refined way.
It was our engineering skills that came to the fore when we installed the structural glass walls of the entrance area. Steel columns with horizontal arms and spider fixings support the 10mm thick plated glass, transferring its weight back onto the columns in an elegant and modern fashion.
At the front of the entrance area, a frameless roof element extends the façade where the column heads and ceiling jointly support a section of glass roof, almost invisibly. OAG also installed the balustrades around the escalator area where visitors enter the building’s retail space. Cannon Place exemplifies beautiful design and engineering ingenuity.
