Architect: Shepherd Robson

For: Allied London

The expressed larch structure cantilevers out on each side to span over the basement carpark beneath. Internally the building free spans across its width to provide uninterrupted venue space, wrapped in glass and green walls.

To provide the timber frame efficiently and cost effectively, Engenuiti developed bespoke software to analyse the composite behaviour of the ribbed CLT and glulam floors. The cores were also designed of composite glulam and CLT effectively using the glulam as the flange on a cantilevered beam. This simplified connections and ensured the maximum efficiency of material.
