Senior Architect Alison Haigh writes about designing for high-rise living

Senior Architect Alison Haigh has written an Insight paper which examines key features which need to be borne in mind when designing and building high-rise residential buildings.

With a rapid increase in high-rise living in the UK in recent years, a large number of urban residential towers are under construction or in the pipeline across our towns and cities (nearly 500 in London alone).

Residential towers demand greater thought than many other typologies for a number of reasons, and Alison’s piece looks at various aspects of the design and construction process in detail, particularly at how to combine economic viability with modes of living that encourage social interaction in places which people want and can afford to live in – all while making a positive visual contribution to the urban skyline.

Chapman Taylor has decades of experience designing and delivering tall buildings, including residential towers, and we are currently working on high-rise residential schemes throughout the UK – notably the tallest building in Bristol (the 26-storey Castle Park View development). Our expertise makes us well-placed to meet the challenges described by Alison in her paper.
