Embassy Court, London

Date Built
45 Wellington Road
This apartment building on Wellington Road, in London's St. John's Wood district, was designed by Piers Gough, of the architectural practice CZWG, for Oakmayne and London & Newcastle at a cost of £35m.

 The LondonNewcastle website describes the building as, "A modern collection of twenty-five elegantly crafted apartments and penthouses .... with high ceilings and panoramic views from the penthouses across London..."  They add that this is the, "First luxury development in the UK to feature a geothermal solution to minimise the use of energy."

At either end of the building are three-dimensional sculptural panels by the artist Sam Keil.

The building is clad in stone installed by Vetter, who apparently replaced the original contractor.  They say of the work that, " Working alongside main contractor Laing O’Rourke, for client Oakmayne Properties, Vetter UK completed the stonework ... The project involved the design and installation of 4,000m² of external cladding creating a rainscreen system to all four elevations of the eight storey building in Salgueira Light, a limestone from Portugal."
