Prominently located within the King’s Cross Masterplan, Cadence is a landmark structure that celebrates the area’s emerging and historic contexts, reinterpreting the arches of King’s Cross and St Pancras stations in a contemporary ‘Bézier’ curve. The 163 dwellings are arranged around a courtyard, with a tranquillity water feature that mirrors surrounding arches, staircases and hanging gardens. Residents communal areas and commercial units are located at ground level. The building has a high-performance thermal envelope: composite timber/aluminium windows reduce energy loss while deep reveals and inset balconies curb summer overheating. The building is connected to low carbon cooling and heating network while prefabrication and off-site manufacturing drastically reduce site waste.
