Drone Footage Reveals 10-Storey Timber Atruim
GLD Technical Consulting designed the mechanical and electrical systems throughout this 10-storey office refurbishment ‘Anchorage House’ based at Canary Wharf, London.
The building was fully updated, with amenities including bars, cafes and extensive outdoor terraces. However the most striking intervention is the new atrium. This structure was built using two types of engineered wood: glulam and cross laminated timber. As shown in the footage, the atrium features multiple balconies, with timber frames that cantilever into the central space. Light floods in from above, thanks to a large skylight overhead. Looking into the atrium are 22,200 square metres of flexible office space that is aimed at “creative companies priced out of central London and Shoreditch”.
