A 22 storey tower rising from a red brick podium building echoing the industrial spirit of its unique location and home to 100 new London apartments.
Art Moderne architecture with unmistakable character, yet governed within by a curation of light, space and energy. A shining example of modern Old Street living and a new beacon for City Road.
Inspired by the skyscrapers of New York’s historic skyline, The Arc’s unmistakeable, tiered form cuts a statuesque figure against the surrounding cityscape. The rational, geometric purity born from this pivotal design approach is what helps foster such contrasting creative flair and expression within.
The first 7 floors comprise 150,000 sqft of office space, while the upper 15 storeys are home to 100 residences. The 7th floor hosts the roof terrace, lounge and other amenities, whilst on the ground floor retailers sit beside an independent restaurant. Beneath lie the underground gym and 332 cycle spaces. The tree dominating the public realm at the front of the building has been preserved, with seating added beneath so you can stop and watch the world go by.
Constantly striving to achieve greener and more sustainable ways of delivering their projects, Ghelamco have become pioneers in the creation of energy neutral concepts, meeting the highest ecological standards across their entire global portfolio. Most recently, their Wronia 31 Warsaw building was formally recognised as the greenest building of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) at the BREEAM Awards 2019. Continuing this tradition, The Arc is targeting a BREEAM excellent rating, a WELL Certified gold and a DGNB Certificate.
The world’s leading sustainability assessment method for buildings based on a range of factors including energy use, health & wellbeing, materials used and overall management.
A WELL certification officially recognises buildings which positively impact the health, engagement and productivity of all who live and work there.
A globally recognised assessment which measures the sustainability of a building across its lifecycle.
Energy efficient design maximising heat loss and gain
Water recycling for irrigation
Underfloor heating and cooling
Combined heat and power system for efficient heating and cooling
A fully electric building, The Arc’s carbon emissions are 30% lower than its multi fuel-operated cousins. Plus, cutting-edge technology means surplus energy from each apartment’s underfloor heating and cooling system is freed up for use by another apartment.
Low energy, low carbon radiant ceiling heating and cooling systems, modern electric heat pumps and the highest possible grade insulation and glazing make your carbon footprint one less thing to worry about.
