This successful example of modern architecture in London primarily uses clear, unemotional and sober design language that has a strong emphasis on straight lines and clearly defi ned structures. Despite this, the staggered, graduated design still manages to create a sense of tension and excitement. The façade materials that are used follow a clear pattern: profi led, dark metal panels form the basis, with the contrasting, white honed ceramic elements the ceramic units also being used to form the window surrounds. The corner solution has been designed as a protruding glass/aluminium façade and gives the appearance of cutting through the overall complex like an autonomous building structure.
