Green light for Fletcher Priest's city tower overhaul

Fletcher Priest Architects has won planning permission to redevelop Fitzroy Robinson’s Angel Court skyscraper (completed 1980) in the City of London

The scheme for TIAA-CREF Asset Management UK will see the existing 25-storey office tower stripped back to its core and reclad with a curved ‘translucent’ skin with a ceramic fritted pattern to provide solar shading.

The approved plans include new podium buildings either side of the tower, increased public and large landscaped roof terraces.

Ed Williams, Partner at Fletcher Priest Architects said: ‘Our brief was to design a future proofed building with sufficient flexibility to meet anticipated 2013 energy standards. This has been achieved through careful consideration of the façade and services design resulting in energy savings of 74 per cent when compared to the existing building.’
