Century House: A Taller Simpler Contemporary Building with Bold Presence

Century House 5

Century House is a residential scheme located in London, UK. The original plan of this residence is not satisfying the owner at all. That’s why Make Architects was asked to give a good alternative to it. With an extensive work and depth analysis, Century House finally becomes a striking building which is simpler and taller with its bold presence.

Century House consists of over 154 apartments in nine levels. The building also provides office space at the ground floor. It creates a balance of working community and balanced living in Southwark. It is not only a good living place but also a good business place.

The fantastic views of London can be seen from the upper floors of the building. These floors also become an access to some roof terraces. There is a private communal garden that sits in the center of the scheme. This garden provides a secluded and attractive space for workers and residents.

Century House design is inspired by the 19th-century warehouse architecture. Make Architects use contemporary and high-quality traditional materials. The London brick, narrow streets, tall building, and archways show how the 19th-century looks like around this residence.
