33 Great Guildford Street

This renovation within a mixed use development features a unique atrium space. A simple tied arch steel structure supports printed three layer air filled pillows to create a four story volume. The arches create drainage at both ends and the drainage enclosure at one end is used to house the airline pipes for the AFP-System. The roof has six continuous pillows and three of them turn downwards to make a unifying ETFE façade.
