Glas sails in to south London with £25 million Buxton Homes scheme

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + PROJECT DATA] Glas has completed this £25 million, 164-flat mixed-use scheme in Southwark Bridge Road, south London

The 17,500m² project for Buxton Homes, which includes 62 affordable homes and 2,200m² of street level office space, is clad in brushed, anodised-aluminium panels in recognition of the area’s industrial and boatbuilding past.

Glas director Nazar Sayigh said: ‘We weren’t shy of the borough’s industrial and shipbuilding heritage [and] the finished building bears some resemblance to a large ship docked on the site.’

Hunter Douglas supplied the Multiple Panel Façade system (MPF) made up of almost 5000 individual silver-grey panels of varying sizes - the largest ever MPF order for anodised aluminium in the UK.
