PostSubject: Bradford Tower Hamms It Up   Sun Jan 09, 2011 2:35 am

Published on 06-04-2009 by Skyscrapernews.com
Soon to start construction in the British city of Bradford is Block B of the very Germanic sounding, No.1 Hamm Strasse, a new mixed use tall building that has been approved by the city planning authorities.

With approximately 1,200 square metres of office space spread over five floors, plus a hundred bedroom three star hotel and 20 apartments and all the usual facilities including a gym and conference centre, the scheme has been designed by KDP Architects to stand to the immediate north of the city centre.

Architecturally the scheme features three up-ended rectangular blocks. The two outer ones each will be clad in full height glass curtain walls and have a corner shaved off them creating acute angles which are then positioned to work in opposing directions. Sandwiched between these two blocks is the central block with horizontal louvres behind the cladding.

Rectangularly shaped, it has the angular service core located at one end and adds the peak to the building of twelve floors, although the developer continues to insist it is only ten.

Connecting at the bottom of the service shaft is a long low-rise wing stretching the length of the site that will contain the hotel. Again with an angled look, it this time features sandstone
