PostSubject: Crowning The Pinnacle   Sat Jan 08, 2011 10:28 pm


Published on 14-04-2009 by Skyscrapernews.com
Currently under construction in London is the 288 metre tall Pinnacle. Record piles are already being used to build the foundation but what about the design that crowns the top of this KPF designed skyscraper?

Well it features a zoomorphic shape that unfurls with the facades of the outer walls are clad in overlaying panels of glass, almost like fish scales. The internal cladding of the distinctive spiral that's given the building the nickname "Helter Skelter" will be glazed to contrast with the main body of the Pinnacle showing off shades of lavender that give a purplish hue.

Rather than let this space go to waste, this spiraling crown has enabled the architect to feature a number of cascading terraces from the 44th floor upwards that take in the upper office floors, and whatever else is above.

Each level of the spiral will also lead to outside terraces paved with masonry and protected by anodised aluminium framed glass facades sloped at different angles ranging from 55 degrees to 50 degrees.

Some of this space at the top of the tower has already been successfully let out by the developer to Rex Restaurants Associates despite the tower not even rising, showing what a commercial draw it is.
