Client Monsoon Accessorize
Monsoon Accessorize is a privately owned British company with two internationally renowned clothing brands: Monsoon and Accessorize. AHMM Architects asked RPG to provide a specification for all the internal glazing and partitioning for the client’s striking new head quarters, known as the Yellow Building.
At the centre of the building, Radii AG installed full-height atrium glazing to the working areas looking directly into the atrium.
On the top floor, Radii AG installed six-metre high glass partitioning that followed the saw tooth pitch styling of the building’s roof. At its highest point, the glass was about six metres high, which meant installing glass partitioning one on top of another. To ensure the glass was secure, Radii AG’s design team worked with AHMM Architects to devise a spider fitting joint that bolts the glass partitioning securely together.
On the lower ground floor, Planet’s demountable PURE100 double glazing provides frontage to all executive offices and meeting rooms. This ensures high sound attenuation and provides staff privacy and quiet working spaces. Each office includes pivoting glass doors and above each glass door Planet had to cut large circular holes to allow installation of steel air attenuators to circulate air throughout the building.
Work took approximately 12 months to complete.
