Planet North Complete Wellington Place, Leeds
An exciting new district has been constructed in the heart of Leeds, Wellington Place is a new and vibrant hub providing, living, working and retail space for 12,000 people. Designed by AHMM Architects the community compromises of 14 separate blocks, providing the residents of Leeds with 22 acres of everything from commercial, residential, and retail & leisure space in the city centre. The buildings are surrounded by beautiful green open spaces and pathways, offering ‘an oasis of calm at the heart of the city’.
With our Planet North office ideally situated in Leeds’s business centre, the team put forward a proposal for the internal glazing to Main Contractor Wates Group for 6 Wellington Place. The client desired a contemporary and luxe feel for the offices, to reflect the aspirational way of living the space provides. Planet rose to the challenge by designing and installing a range of clean, frameless glass partitioning. Our slimmest line, Planet 20 was used throughout and paired with our 34dB slim line glass doors to provide a light airy feel. Where higher acoustics were required, Planet 100 and 50dB was used, however it was Planet’s innovative use of ‘glass fins’ rotated at an angle to section off seating spaces that give the offices a truly sophisticated and unique feel.
This new urban space is a fantastic example of growing construction in the North and Planet North are excited to be at the forefront.
