Completed in early 2020, the Waterside Apartment scheme is a luxury residential development on the banks of the River Trent and a pivotal part of the wider regeneration of the area.
The project involved the conversion of the former Rushcliffe Borough Council Civic Centre, plus the building of two new 11 storey residential towers. The result is a mix of 121 luxury apartments and duplex penthouses, with offices and leisure facilities on the ground floor.
To make the most of the breath-taking views over the river towards the city, Leonard Design Architects specified an extensive high performance fenestration package from Senior Architectural Systems.
Floor to ceiling glazing using SF52 aluminium curtain walling and SPW600 aluminium windows gives a light and spacious feel throughout. In addition, for the apartments, the installation of PURe® SLIDE doors leading to Juliet balconies provides natural ventilation when open and exceptional thermal performance to maintain a comfortable living environment when closed.
For the penthouse apartments, installation of a 4-leaf configuration of the PURe® SLIDE door enables the central two doors to glide effortlessly open giving access to the panoramic roof terrace. The perfect spot from which to watch the sun set over the city.
