Description of the project

UNCLE Elephant and Castle is a residential property in one of London’s most vibrant and well-connected neighbourhoods. The 37-storey property is one of London’s tallest residential buildings. Breathtaking views can be enjoyed from the 45th floor Sky Lounge, co-working spaces, and on-site gym.
Designed by Squire and Partners, the building also includes an adjoining four-storey pavilion with a residents’ roof garden and 7,000 square feet of ground floor shops, restaurants and creative business space. 

The architects have created a sustainable urban living space for its residents, not just high quality residential accommodation, but also impressive design and architecture that enables residents to reduce their carbon footprint and live in a healthy environment where they interact in community gardens and spaces.

The property benefits from double insulating glass units, with thermal insulation glass and solar control glass supplied by Guardian Glass. The solar control glass is Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral (SN) 70/37, which has a beautiful, neutral, transparent appearance with low reflection and consistent colour. The multifunctional coating also minimises the need for artificial light and offers outstanding thermal insulation, keeping residents comfortable at all times of the year.
