Manhattan Loft Gardens – Sustainable Design

Situated alongside one of London’s largest and newest transport interchanges, the Manhattan Loft Gardens tower comprises 248 residential units and a 150-room hotel. The design incorporates a host of sustainable strategies, earning the hotel a BREEAM "Outstanding" ranking and garnering the tower's residential component a Code for Sustainable Homes Level Four ranking.

The project calls for careful selection of materials, including high usage of recycled concrete and steel. The building will achieve reduced water consumption through a number of measures: smaller baths, low-flow taps and showers, surface water runoff control, and the collection of rainwater for irrigation. Other sustainable features include advanced lighting controls, photovoltaics, and a building envelope that minimizes heat loss.
