Mentmore Terrace

A mixed-use development located in the highly desirable London Fields area of the capital benefited from the optimum thermal performance of the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System.

The Project

For over a decade the plot on Mentmore Terrace had stood vacant and was used only for occasional unpermitted parking.

USE Architects partnered local developer Albion Homes to create the new five storey building which uses a concrete frame innovative corian rainscreen cladding to reflect the industrial heritage of the local area.

At the top of the property is a luxury three bedroom penthouse, complete with a spacious roof terrace. To maintain the building’s clean aesthetic, USE Architects needed a slim-line insulation product which would allow them to achieve a compliant U-value for the terrace without exceeding the internal floor height. This led them to specify 40 mm thick panels of the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System.

A further thickness of Kingspan Thermaroof TR27 LPC/FM was then used as an overlay with a vapour control layer and the final paving fitted above.

The Bauhaus was certainly one of the inspirations for the final building design and we wanted to maintain a simple, modern aesthetic throughout. By specifying the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System we were able to meet the Building Regulation requirements without having to create an awkward level change between the interior and exterior spaces.

Now completed, 3 Mentmore Terrace provides two B2 class business units on the ground floor, helping to support Hackney Council’s commitment to creating employment opportunities. The property also features a secure bike store, video intercom and lift to all levels with security code access to the penthouse.
