Euston Square exceeds sustainable targets

This unique mixed use building which combines a lower level hotel and retail with upper level housing establishes a new landmark for this prominent site adjacent to Euston Rail Station.

Significantly, this project exceeds its mandated 10% on site renewable energy requirements, and is one of the first developments completed within the UK to incorporate a foundation pile integrated ground source heat exchange system.

Exceeding its mandated 10% on site renewable energy requirements, Euston Square is one of the first developments completed within the UK to incorporate a foundation pile integrated ground source heat exchange system.

Stuart Cross, project architect at Dexter Moren Associates states “the ground source heat exchange system as designed should achieve a 15% energy saving – and is one of the first UK built examples of achieving these types of savings in the hotel & leisure sector”.

Faced with the constraints of a very narrow site, DMA worked closely with local residents and planners to ensure a scheme which achieves integration and minimal impact, yet delivers an exciting and lively design to assist in revitalising the precinct.

The facade is wrapped in a vertically seamed bronze rain screen cladding system & sto render with the lower level elevation on Grafton Place featuring integrated LED feature lighting.

The development accommodates a 150 bedroom hotel over the lower five levels and a 23sqm retail unit. The fourth to seventh floors include 16 key worker units providing enviable views across the adjacent park.
