Hueck has supplied its high-performance windows and doors for a new glass-clad London landmark that boasts excellent green credentials.

Hoola is a residential development of 360 individually designed homes set across two rippling glass towers in Tidal Basin Street.

The eco-friendly buildings use recycled energy and achieve a 57% reduction in CO2 emissions against building regulations. They are also super-insulated, with the concrete frame acting as a heat sink.

The £80m development was designed by architects CZWG and delivered by property developers Hub Group.

It consists of two towers of 23 and 24 storeys offering a range of apartments from studios to three bedrooms, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass walls opening onto full-width private balconies.

Located alongside the historic Royal Victoria Dock, the stylish and contemporary apartments offer panoramic views of London.

Hueck supplied the aluminium windows and doors for each of the apartments.

“Green construction has become more important as developers look to increase the lifespan and reduce energy consumption for buildings by incorporating designs and materials that cater to future occupant needs.

“Our products are not only attractive, they are designed to be incredibly energy efficient, helping to reduce utility costs, reduce the carbon footprint of the building and improve longevity.”

Hoola marks the gateway to London’s Royal Docks, an area set for major regeneration over the next few years.

Skyscraper projects like Hoola will become ever increasing as the capital’s population rapidly expands.

“London’s population reached an all-time high of 8.6m in 2015. By 2020, there will be 10m Londoners and by 2050, 11m.

“With all densely populated areas, when you can’t build out you build up, which is why we’re seeing more luxury skyscraper projects proposed to cater to young professionals and families who see the city as an attractive place to live.”
