Unitised Curtain Walling

The sobriety of a site such as Paternoster Square has been preserved by using non-reflective glazing with thermally broken Polyester Powder Coated (RAL 7030) profiles, which are harmoniously inserted into a grid of Portland stone. The perimeter curtain walling consists of 2 different types of units: 

- Units inserted into the vertical strips formed between the Portland stone clad columns from floors I to 5
- A continuous zone of curtain walling crowning the upper floors of the building (the 5th - 6th and 7th) with sunshading formed by feature glazed panels.

A particularly interesting feature is the arrangement of the curved façades where the use of curved fascia, stone and coping elements permitted the use of facetted glass units without interrupting the radial aesthetic of the façade.

Eric Parry

This building, which has been designed and developed by Eric Parry Architects and Sheppard Robson Architects with technical consultancy from Arup Façade, is situated at one of the most attractive architectural locations in London, adjacent to St. Paul's Cathedral.

The London Stock Exchange features an essentially clean architectural solution, which blends in with the texture of this important area. This was achieved by the use of Portland stone in conjunction with Focchi’s curtain walling technology.
