Hawkins\Brown-designed hybrid timber tower tops out in London

Wenlock Road, a 10-storey residential and office tower designed by Hawkins\Brown as part of the wider Banyan Wharf development, has officially topped out. The structure is now the tallest hybrid timber tower in London and is due to complete in 2015.

B+K Structures has developed an innovative structural system which has enabled the building to be manufactured sustainably off-site and constructed with maximum efficiency, using the minimum amount of steel elements possible.

The project includes 4,650 sq m of residential space and 1,190 sq m of B1 office units across its 10-storey frame, totalling 50 apartments in twisted 2-storey cruciform blocks. Hawkins\Brown have incorporated east and west facing terraces and a grand open terrace at first floor level.
