Unitised double façade: One- and two-dimensionally curved wood-aluminium element façade with external all-glass appearance (structural glazing); glass roof; wood lamella cladding; atrium facades and balustrades.

London has been experiencing an historic building boom since the turn of the millennium. Schneider was responsible for the design and installation of the impressive, award-winning double façade for the 10 New Burlington Street project.

The 10 New Burlington Street project on the corner of Regent Street and New Burlington Street is a prime example of successful inner-city modernisation. Only two listed Portland stone facades from the period between 1895 and 1927, when London’s top shopping mile was first modernised, and brick vaults from the early 19th century remained. Since 2014 an ultra-modern, sustainable mixed building with a total of 12,500 square metres of high-quality office and retail space has risen up on the area behind it. The double façade is gently curved and visible from the other two sides of the building complex.

The curved double façade of the 10 Burlington Street project features both an unique mix of materials and high levels of energy efficiency. The primary façade was designed with an American white oak and aluminium frame construction and parallel opening windows. In addition to the aesthetics, the sustainability was heavily decisive here, using recyclable materials and ensuring an ecologically sound building. Alongside leading the construction and installation of the double façade, Schneider was also responsible for the design of the atrium facades, the glass roof and the lamella facades and balustrades.
