Fulham Reach - Hammersmith
A mixed-use development bordering the Thames on the old Hammersmith Distillery Site, Fulham Reach provides blocks of premium residential flats with leisure facilities and retail shell and core units to the ground floor.
The leisure facilities are extensive and include a gym, spa, boathouse, cinema and a virtual gaming room. As part of the planning consent, the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham required that this prominent riverside site achieves BREEAM Very Good to minimise the environmental impact.
DucoSun Cubic solar shading blades

The choice was made for DucoSun Cubic 100 solar shading blades. Together with the rectangular shape of the solar shading blade, this produces a very clean-cut effect. The solar shading blades and the façade face form a beautiful unit.
