One Tower Bridge

Squire & Partners as Architects

One Tower Bridge is a prominent site bound by the Grade I listed Tower Bridge, More London and the River Thames. Squire and Partners’ masterplan aims to create a lasting piece of the city, appropriate to the surrounding context of Potters Fields Park and the South Bank. Defining the edge of Potters Fields Park is Cambridge House, a low horizontal building clad in strips of Catalan Gris limestone, with a double height ground floor accessing a 6,870m2 cultural space for the London Theatre Company, set to open in 2017. Sharing the same palette and set within a central landscaped courtyard is The Tower, a 20 storey slender ‘campanile’ topped by a glazed garden terrace. The Catalan Gris stone is offset with thinly detailed bronze anodised windows and chamfered recesses. Three eleven-storey finger blocks with projecting stone balconies are positioned between landscaped gardens at the centre of the development. Two further buildings step down in scale towards Tower Bridge Road, constructed from London stock brick to relate to the adjacent Shad Thames. Interest is added with handset basketweave brickwork and a series of projecting timber balconies. A new pedestrian route, Duchess Walk, has been created to maximise views through the site from Tooley Street to Tower Bridge, animated by shops, cafes and a resident’s spa and gymnasium.

Reynaers Aluminium as Aluminium Windows and Doors

Aluminium systems frame iconic views at One Tower Bridge


More than 300 sliding doors have been installed at Berkeley Homes’ development at the foot of London’s landmark Tower Bridge. Nine apartment blocks form the structure of One Tower Bridge, offering residents a vast swimming pool and luxury spa, as well as a state-of-the-art gymnasium, business lounge and virtual golf facility.


Reynaers’ Aluminium glazing systems have been applied across five of the nine apartment blocks, selected for their ability to meet the look, feel and quality required by the architects at Squire and Partners. Curtain wall systems were supplied such as extensive runs of CW 60 and CW 50 uncapped curtain walling. Bespoke solutions for a non-90 degree open-corner patio and a 2-track running into a 3-track patio were developed especially for this project. These systems chosen for One Tower Bridge allows residents to have panoramic views over London, without compromising on insulation or ease of operation.
