The Stage – Residential

Mixed-use development with challenging constraints

A challenging development including a world-class heritage centre.

One of the focuses of this unique inner-city project was the design of a complex 37-storey tower block, housing 412 high-tech luxury apartments overlooking one of the largest new public piazzas in the capital.

The project was challenging due to numerous constraints, including tight height restrictions and a complex sequence of construction due to the triple basements required, resulting in complex temporary works and the tower being built as partial top-down construction.

The historical site also came with multiple constraints due to its archaeological importance and the remains of The Curtain Theatre, which hosted William Shakespeare and his acting troupe. There will be a heritage centre on site, housing the remains of the theatre. Within the interactive building you will be able to stand on the actual stage.

The result is a covetable new development close to Liverpool Street station that boasts a claim to history, shops, a performing arts pavilion, as well as a luxury gym, terrace, bar and bowling alley in the tower block.
