Manhattan Loft Gardens is a new residential tower in London that opened in the spring of 2019. The tower presents an arresting silhouette on the skyline as a result of three, triple-height, skygarden notches cutting through its volume and interrupting half of the building’s perimeter columns.

The sky gardens result in huge cantilevers and significant discontinuities in the tower’s vertical load path that required a number of innovative structural systems and strategies, including deep post-tensioned outriggers, steel belt trusses and an unusual construction sequence.

The structural engineering design of this ambitious structure combined a high level of advanced analysis with a special focus on simplicity and constructability.
