We are delighted to have Angel Court shortlisted for the AJ Architecture Award: Tall Building of the Year 2017.
Angel Court is located within the Bank of England Conservation Area, where no new high-rise buildings are permitted. However, by replacing an existing 1970s tower with a unique almost translucent one, the façade screen-printed with 1mm dots to produce an ethereal effect, the building exceeds the challenging brief set out by the client team and the City of London planners, who wished to avoid the darkness of the original tower. Angel Court was credited with a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating 2014 – one of the first in London – with an EPC of A.
The winners of the AJ Architecture awards will be announced on 7 December 2017.
