Two New Bailey
Two New Bailey Square, designed by AHMM Architects, is the perfect example of our open-mindedness for bespoke energy-efficient building envelopes design (grade A BREEAM “Excellent” specification). Façades are formed by a Unitized curtain wall to all elevations from Level 2 to 11, with a fully glazed façade on the North Elevation to the staircase. A combination of timber and aluminium framed stick curtain walling is used at the ground
floor and first floors. An interesting aspect of this project is the external structural steel frame with its visible connections and splices left exposed and protruding from the façade. Its exposed elements are designed to provide solar shading as well as referencing to an industrial aesthetic in the context. Special sealing and prefabrication techniques were implemented to build the cladding units and overlay the façade panels.
