The DRG solution

The previous building had an eye-catching entrance, with a curved frontage encompassing the entrance atrium and part of the floors above. The project began with a full strip-out, including the removal of heavy machinery in the roof space, and the addition of structural steelworks to make space for an extra floor of apartments within the roof space itself.

The fit-out stage then began, with the installation of internal partitioning and doors, creating 63 one-bedroom apartments and 17 two-bedroom apartments – including two luxury apartments in the curved areas either side of the atrium. All apartments were individually finished, and featured spacious, open plan living spaces and modern appliances, with carefully chosen fixtures.
