Tower Place is a building opposite All Hallows Church, near the Tower of London, designed by Foster + Partners. The interior project exploited the structural and functional potential of the partitioning from the P700 series comprising double-glazed walls without uprights.
The building’s deep plan made it necessary to maximise daylight penetration, an aim that was achieved by using full-height glazed walls without uprights going from floor to ceiling.
The prestigious interiors were designed by Gensler and Associates. P700 walls with transom windows supporting ceiling heights from four metres to five metres thirty were designed and installed in the wide corridors which were the areas with the highest natural light requirements.
Technology for privacy.
The cavity between the two sheets of glass contains Venetian blinds which can be closed to screen the adjoining areas from view. This unique system is seemingly suspended in mid-air thanks to partitions attached to the metal door uprights and wall abutments, the only metal components.
A cosy restaurant.
The double-glazed walls with transom windows enclosing the offices make way for single-glazed walls from the P600 Extra Dry series in the breakout areas; by reducing metal floor and ceiling elements to a minimum to blend in with the carpeting.
