We have designed landmark housing opposite Channel 4’s HQ in Westminster for developer Pegasus Life. The scheme provides 39 flats on six floors together with communal kitchen-café, storage areas, wellness centre/spa, guest accommodation, and apartments for staff.
The building offers high quality living spaces that prioritise wellness and living in an urban setting.
Chimes has all the benefits of the city on its doorstep, providing new homes alongside a landscaped courtyard, shared amenity, dining spaces and a wealth of other services and facilities designed to the standard of the best London clubs and hotels, ensuring residents are able to enjoy life fully.
The building has intricate bronzed metalwork and lime green, hand pressed, textured glazed bricks. Cast bronzed screens on the ground floor control views, light and privacy. The façades are designed to high thermal and acoustic performance.
The building design is expected to obtain a 7% reduction in CO2 emissions through utilising renewable energy sources, along with a further 13% reduction through good active and passive design measures.
“This will be a place to enjoy life.” (Roger Black, Pegasus Life)
