An architectural classic of the future, created by world-renowned architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners with Six modern and elegant pavilions specifically designed to maximise the sunlight within and optimise the views out. An exclusive residents’ clubhouse offers a unique ‘third space’ between home and work in which to socialise, exercise, and be entertained – from a private screening room, to virtual golf; club lounge to pool, gym and spa. Glass lift shafts and lift cars placed on the outside of each building provide spectacular views of the River Thames. Riverlight is designed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and BREEAM very good. The site has a district heating system aided by a ground source heat pump.
ToughGlaze manufactured 17.5mm Toughened Laminate glass to meet the building regulations of 0.74kn/m² line load, on all 6 pavilions. All the panels supplied were heat soaked to negate the potential of glass failure through inclusions, most notably Nickel Sulphide.
