The building is designed with a curving façade of aluminium and glass divided into a series of three to five-story clusters, conceived as “individual neighbourhoods in the sky”.

The 31 storey architectural masterpiece created by internationally-lauded UNStudio does more than propose an eyecatching and contemporary living space both inside and out.

The Canaletto Tower succeeds in drawing in and reflecting the best of its environment through innovative design and attention to every detail. The architecture and offering set a new standard for future residential developments in London.

 

Glass

The building is designed with a curving façade of aluminium and glass divided into a series of three to five-story clusters, conceived as “individual neighbourhoods in the sky”. Each of the 190 apartments has a balcony or terrace within the big bends that encircle the building, all offering views over the City of London to the South and the basin waterways to the North.

The apartments have floor-to-ceiling glass for which energy solar control glass was specified due to its neutral appearance, solar control and thermal insulation properties, as well as its suitability for curved glazing. Over 4,200m2 of double glazed units were fabricated by CareyGlass.

 

Details

The 31 Storey residential tower, offers waterside living with 190 luxury apartments, spa, swimming pool, gym, cinema, resident's lounge, restaurant, cafe, amenity shop, and sky terrace on the 24th floor.
