Project: Mapleton Crescent
Location: Wandsworth, London
Client: Donban/Pocket Living
Units: 86 Apartments
Key Fact: Currently the tallest residential modular building in Europe.
This 26 storey, 86 unit residential tower is a multi award winning structure located in the centre of Wandsworth. The structure will consists of an insitu concrete frame up to level 2 with an insitu core going up 26 floors. The remaining structure was formed with using highly advanced prefabricated off site volumetric units. On a site area of only 500m2 and bounded by the River Wandle, an electrical substation and Mapleton Crescent, the building construction was further complicated by a Thames Water surface water overflow sewer running under the site. The sender nature and triangular shape of the building presented challenging dynamic design conditions. Wind tunnel testing was utilized during the design process.
