Wrap Around Winter Gardens
Hunters' Building Consultancy team is investigating the use of an innovative new way to provide extra new space, improved energy efficiency and an aesthetically pleasing wrap for tower blocks.
The system is currently used in Scandinavia and Hunters are working with the London Borough of Havering to install the glazed wrap on two tower blocks. The new facade acts as a protective layer to the building creating space which acts as winter gardens for the flats.
Graham Acus, Director at Hunters, commented: "The idea provides so many benefits for the residents and the Scandinavian design is really attractive. We think the wrap will be highly successful and rolled out elsewhere."
