Carson Woolstore Penthouse


Project no. 6161

This project consisted of refurbishment to an existing penthouse apartment within the Carson Woolstore complex in Teneriffe. BE Collective were recommended by Tonic Architecture & Design and subsequently commissioned to provide structural design support for demolition work and renovation of this heritage project.

The strong character of the heritage building is enhanced through large exposed timber beams and columns, as well as voluminous space created by the saw-tooth ceiling line. The roof structure required strengthening to accommodate an impressive central chandelier. The chandelier weighs in excess of 1200kg (being the same as a small car), and our strengthening works are cleverly hidden and discrete within in the ceiling cavity.

Based on our experience with other heritage projects, BE Collective maintained a high site presence. We worked closely with the other consultants during all stages of the project and waited until we had a comprehensive understanding of the existing structural elements before finalising design documentation. The overall result is one of pure luxury and this warehouse apartment is sure to impress. Images courtesy Tonic Architecture & Design Well done Tonic!
