[FIRST LOOK] These are latest images of Penoyre & Prasad’s project to re-clad Guy’s Hospital tower in London Bridge, south London
The 34-storey tower will have its deteriorating 40-year old concrete cleaned and its ancillary service tower will be clad in anodized aluminium panelling.
The project features a street-level double height glass curtain wall which aims to ‘open up’ the 143 metre-tall tower and new landscaping to Great Maze Pond.
Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust launched a public consultation last week and plans to complete the £30 million project by autumn 2013.
The hospital’s charity has commissioned a light sculpture by Carsten Nicolai for the top of the tower.
In January, Penoyre & Prasad revealed its initial proposals for the tower which was designed by Watkins Gray and was completed in 1974. It is the 11th tallest building in London at 153m.
