Icona Point

 
Residential Landmark Olympic Scheme Represents Design And Construction Excellence

With a brief to deliver a high-quality, landmark building and drive the long-term regeneration of Stratford, Icona Point transforms a derelict site overlooking the Olympic Park into a mixed use scheme delivering 249 apartments together with commercial space in an 18 storey tower and two blocks of seven and four storeys.

Led by a detailed urban analysis of the emerging townscape, the scheme was designed with a bold elliptical shape and clad with a brightly coloured façade to cement its prominent status.

A central landscaped courtyard connects the blocks and encourages an integrated community and a new walkway extends through to the river frontage. Making extensive use of Modern Methods of Construction, the external envelope of steel and glass balconies, aluminium panels and distinctive fins were prefabricated and their installation completed without scaffolding.
