Highbury College Tower is a 10 storey concrete frame building. Classrooms occupy the first 5 floors with the 5 upper floors providing single room dormitories (50 in total).
The existing building incorporates a “gull-wing roof” which needs to be removed exposing the original flat roof. The building was clad in a secret fix aluminium cassette system incorporating rubber gaskets.
The gullwing roof was cut-back and concealed by the new perimeter Louvre system at parapet level. The plant room was also lowered so as to be concealed by the new perimeter Louvre system. The perimeter Louvre system also includes new feature LED strip lighting.
