The Lexicon, London, UK

The Lexicon, 261 City Road, is the cen­tral eye-cat­cher within a complex of three buildings deve­loped by Mount Anvil in coope­ra­tion with Affinity Sutton. With its 36 storeys it is the highest building in Islington.
The three buildings have their own cha­racter. They are, however, linked toge­ther through the use of the same mate­rials and details. The Tower has an innova­tive cur­tain facade with a ven­ti­lated two-shell glass con­struc­tion allowing for floor-to-ceiling gla­zing for the best pos­sible view over London. The upper storeys of the building have patios extending over the entire width of the building.
On behalf of the Euro­pean facade specia­list Yuanda Europe, Gretsch­-Unitas deve­loped and supplied all kinds of hard­ware for the fol­lowing window app­li­ca­tions: manual Pro­je­c­ting Top-Hung win­dows, motor-driven ven­ti­la­tion flaps, manual floor-to-ceiling Turn-Only win­dows with sashes wei­ghing up to 250 kg, manual curved Turn-Only win­dows wei­ghing up to 150 kg, concealed clampable aluminium hinges in a special ver­sion for high sash weights, manual Turn-Only win­dows with various sash geo­me­tries, and sky­lights with different geo­me­tries allowing them to be opened for clea­ning.
