Herzog & de Meuron, the firm who have designed Paris's first ever inner city tower since 1977, are to once again break boundaries by designing the UK's tallest residence to be built on London's South Bank.

The set of three towers, named 3 Houses, will stand side by side at 437 ft, 932 ft and 706 ft. While Herzog & de Meuron are not currently releasing any information on the project, the details were leaked to British Newspaper, the Sunday Times. The paper reports the project will cost £350 million, will be taller than London's current tallest building One Canada Square and planning is due to be submitted within the next two months. Officially, the project's developer, Sellar Developments, advise that no details will be released until May this year.
