Saffron Square is designed specifically to provide desirable, sustainable and affordable high density living.
A dramatic 45 storey tower which defines the bold, landmark development of nearly 800 new homes at Saffron Square.
The tower presides over lower-rise geometric modules which are configured to create a harmonised scheme.
The smooth, sleek profile of the façades features glass panels with high light transmission levels in 17 different colours. Together they form an image of a ‘pixelated’ crocus flower. The colourful design was inspired by the crocus flowers which were cultivated in the area back in roman times.
Cutting-edge and sharply-defined, the tower slices into the prevailing south-westerly winds and takes maximum advantage of the sun’s course over the seasons.
Polyhedral forms below the tower appear to ‘wrap’ an inner garden space, which is designed with a similar design language. Wide walkways at street level are made possible by imposing concrete pillars which support the homes above. Echoing the differing angles of tree trunks, they form an urban forest to envelope the peaceful contained space.
Floor-to-ceiling ‘doors’ are ingeniously integrated into the glazing units. A unique solution to address the requirement to provide balcony windows. The ‘doors’ can slide open within the plane of the building, preserving the clean external lines of the façade.
Duplex and triplex apartments on the upper most floors appear suspended in the sky. With fully glazed internal spaces and terraces giving unrivalled panoramic views.
A central, open courtyard provides quiet amenity space along with additional roof gardens over every component.
