Lincoln Square – London
Living in the best location! Numerous institutions and universities such as the famous King’s College and the Covent Garden theatre district are located near the 10-storey luxury residential complex with its 230 apartments and penthouses. Schneider supplemented the elegant stone façade with element façades, sheet metal façades, in addition to balconies, windows and doors, among other things.
In harmony with the historical context. Typical London-style buildings with their bright stone façades, bay windows and cornices are located around Portugal Street and Carey Street. In line with the architects’ ideas, the Lincoln Square residential project should reflect the aesthetics of its surroundings, both in terms of its façade and the materials chosen. Landscaped terraces surround the upper floors. They were shifted to the rear to make the building appear less imposing and at the same time create a clear view and ensure privacy.
An oasis in the London city centre. A 6-storey elevation forms the basis in ensuring the adaptation of the individual façades to the shape, colour and texture of the surrounding buildings. An almost regal courtyard with gardens and fountains does not merely represent a wonderful oasis of tranquility, but also offers space for children to romp around and play. The lively ambience of the inner courtyard is rounded off by the elaborate “Living Surface” coating of the sheet metal façade, that was used for the first time. The main façade was structured by architects from the British town of Stanton Moor using sandstone with bay windows, perforated windows, vertical stone slats and sheet metal bands that run horizontally.
Schneider contributed towards the project’s success with a variety of designs: Structural glazing at the entrance, a steel mullion façade, slat elements, sound insulation, glass and steel balustrades, high-quality wooden entrance doors made of oak, double-leaf lift and slide doors, canopies and fire protection doors. Even elaborately produced plant pots in a contrasting shade of red as well as climbing aids on the façade of the inner courtyard form part of this varied project.
