SKY Believe in Better Building
Location: Osterley, West London, UK
Architect: Arup Associates
Facade Design: Innovation Glass
Completed in 2015, the Sky UK headquarters in Osterley, West London, is the tallest commercial timber frame structure in England. The interior multi-floor staircase is adjacent to a three-story VS1 wall which clear spans over 40ft. The exterior-facing mullions help create decisive vertical lines that characterize the beautiful exterior facade simultaneously achieving a flush glass wall bordering the master staircase at the interior. This project marked the introduction of the VS1 system to the United Kingdom with many projects following it.
