£23.5m / Residential / Commerical
A large mixed-use development comprising 164 residential units and 354sqm of retail space around a central courtyard. The site spans a busy London Overground railway line at shallow depth just north of Kings Cross station. Building across the tunnels required a complex structural solution with heavier concrete frame structures situated adjacent to the lines joined by a storey deep concrete bridging structure incorporating underground car parking with lightweight steel construction above. The building is acoustically lined and is isolated from its foundations of shock absorbent bearing to deaden vibrations from passing trains.
