Symmetrys was both structural and civil engineers for this development providing apartments for senior living in the heart of Hampstead, London.
Split into two blocks, the six storeys above ground overlie two storeys of basement which contain plant space, service areas and an automated parking system. By adopting a reinforced concrete frame of flat slabs we delivered a cost–effective construction, while giving a high level of acoustic insulation and freedom of partition layout and services distribution.
Services ducting was cast within the slabs to maximise headroom. Feature staircases reminiscent of Art Deco Parisian apartment buildings provide access to all upper floors. Below ground, a contiguous piled retaining wall creates the basement, with piled foundations required internally to support the eight storeys.
